Most information security professionals were against SOPA. Well if you didn’t like that, you’re really going to hate these two.

What are CISA & TTP?

Trans-Pacific Partnership Agreement (TPP)

There’s a lot of love about TPP, but I think these things are going to cause problems.

  • Journalists who report news like wiki-leaks are in trouble
  • Circumventing any security controls – more illegal than ever
  • Copyright fair use will be tightened until it squeaks
  • Internet service providers will be required to do more take down activities

Cybersecurity Information Sharing Act (CISA)

is a rewrite of the highly controversial Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act.

  • Requires (DNI),  (DHS),  (DOD), and (DOJ) to develop and promulgate procedures to promote:
  • (1) the timely sharing of classified and declassified cyber threat indicators
  • (2) the sharing of unclassified indicators with the public
  • (3) the sharing of cybersecurity threats with entities to prevent or mitigate adverse effects.

These sound pretty good on the surface but…

The law is so broad that a bunch of unintended consequences will occur, such as:

  • Forced sharing between .gov and .com = international issues
  • Legislating protection and controls = audit will suck more
  • Big data becomes BIG BROTHER
