Cybersecurity bill adopted by Senate committee

  • The United States Senate intelligence committee has voted to adopt a bill on cybersecurity that may give the National Security Agency even greater access to data of citizens than before, critics say.

    According to its proponents, the bill — approved by a 12-3 vote during a meeting, which was not open to the public — will remove legal roadblocks that disallow companies from real-time sharing in case of cyber-attacks.

    However, it is not clear if the bill would easily pass a full Senate.
