Executive Order vs. CISPA

Executive Order vs. CISPA

It is inevitable that our government is going to put in place some sort of cyber security policy. The objective would hopefully be to create a safety net against hackers while still maintaining citizen’s constitutional right to free speech, among other rights. It’s up to perspective to decided whether an Executive Order by President Obama, CISPA, or another solution serves best for both parties. 


Anonymous and CISPA


We have been focused on the cyber hacker group Anonymous. We are currently reading the book, “We Are Anonymous” by Parmy Olson. It is an assigned book that we as college students actually enjoy reading because it’s entertaining and obscure. I had not heard of Anonymous before reading this book but I think other students would find this group interesting to learn about. These videos about Anonymous give some insight on their goals, actions, and philosophies. The cyber security bill CISPA was re-introduced after Anonymous cyber attacked China. Anonymous is outrightly against CISPA, SOPA, PIPA, and any other cyber security government bill that may threaten their objective, and quite frankly their livelihood. Anonymous has multiple youtube channels devoted to their cause. I’ll post the link just after this video about CISPA.
