This May, Congress is expected to come together on a bill to protect private entities that secretly share user data with federal agencies. Privacy advocates say the Cybersecurity Information Sharing Act of 2015 (CISA)—with its emphasis on information sharing—threatens civil liberties by sanctioning yet another avenue for government surveillance.

CISA is unlikely to meaningfully prevent cyber-attacks as proponents claim, and could ultimately weaken cybersecurity.
