Mikko Hypponen believes CISPA is the key to stopping cyber criminals
The controversial Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act (CISPA) has been praised by F-Secure's chief researcher officer Mikko Hypponen, who argues it will aid law enforcement in the ongoing war against cyber criminals.
Hypponen, who has advised numerous law enforcement and government agencies on cyber policy and defence, told V3 CISPA is a move in the right direction. The bill is the antithesis of the controversial Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA) and Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement (ACTA) bills and will help fight cyber crime, he said.
"It's not at all similar to SOPA and ACTA, it's about catching cyber criminals," he said. "To me it reads like a good bill about fighting cyber crime." He said those bills had caused so much controversy because they had been championed by right's holders. "There's one party that's consistently been shouting the loudest for these [SOPA and ACTA] type of bills and that's the entertainment industry," said Hypponen.
