CISPA: Helping American Businesses Fight Back

I was pleased last week to vote for H. R. 624, the Cyber Intelligence Sharing & Protection Act (CISPA) of 2013. This bipartisan legislation creates a means by which businesses can voluntarily work with our national security agencies to protect our computer networks from foreign cyber-assault. Every day internet hackers around the world try to steal the intellectual property of American businesses. They also try to steal the private information that you and I entrust to those businesses as customers. If H. R. 624 was to become law it would provide a new way for our country’s entrepreneurs and their customers to fight back against this relentless intrusion into our private business affairs. The CISPA program would not require any one to participate, being entirely voluntary, and would not authorize the federal government to monitor private networks or communications or to obtain our gun, library, medical, or tax records. CISPA fulfills Congress’s constitutional Article 1, Section 8 duty to “provide for the common defense” without infringing on our civil liberties. For more information on our fight to protect American businesses and customers from foreign hackers please feel free to read the bill and accompanying information here,and e-mail me at if you have any questions or concerns.

– Frank.
