What is CISPA?

The Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act (CISPA) was introduced in the U.S. House of Representatives by representatives Mike Rogers, R-MI, and Dutch Ruppersberger, D-MD, in November 2011.

The bill would open up communication between the federal government and businesses in the interest of detecting and fighting cyber threats.

The government would be able to issue security clearances to share classified cyber threat intelligence to private business employees.
