Essentially, it updates privacy protections for email to give items stored in the cloud the same legal protections as items stored on a user s hard drive. Still, some in Congress believe its provisions weaken the powers of law enforcement. 4 The Cybersecurity Information Sharing Act of 2014, introduced by Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.), is the latest in a long list of attempts to come up with a method for govern- ment and the private sector to share information about cybersecurity threats. In the past, bills have failed over issues related to the civil liability of private-sector entities that report breaches. 5 The Federal Spectrum Incen- tive Act is a bit of a sleeper, but it could boost federal spectrum policy by allowing agencies to bene t directly from funds generated by the auction of spectrum they opt to relinquish.
