Just an update, folks.
The problem seems not to be cybersecurity itself, but poorly crafted legislation. The zealots favoring the bill seem to continue to forget about the 1st amendment and other personal privacy issues.
There probably IS a fine line between necessary surveillance (for national security reasons) and privacy protection.
I’m not holding my breath that either side of the current partisan Congress and Senate will be able to draft a reasonable compromise in the near future.
But you never know.
