House Passes Cyber Security Bill

A controversial cyber security bill passed by the U.S. House Thursday, now rests in the hands of the Senate.

The Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act, CISPA, would allow voluntary information sharing between private companies and the government in the event of a cyber attack.

If, for example, the government detects a cyber attack that might take down Facebook or Google, they could notify those companies.
