UpFront – CISA and surveillance; US, Turkey, ISIS, and the Kurds

20015230789_6e1e51b785_hCISA-The Cybersecurity Information Sharing Act is a bill that won’t die.  Privacy advocates say the latest version allows for widespread surveillance but holds private companies immune from lawsuits for sharing people’s private data.  Lee Tien with the Electronic Frontier Foundation discusses the latest version of the mass surveillance bill.
