Video game makers sharing your data with US government

Posted on Tuesday, February 17 2015 @ 12:01:29 CET by


News came out a couple of days ago that major tech firms as well as video game firms have agreed to share customer data with the US government. The initiative is part of Obama's Cybersecurity Information Sharing and Protection Act, a new framework for expanded information sharing to quickly identify and protect against cyber threats. Full details at Motherboard.
So far, Apple, Intel, Bank of America, US Bank, Pacific Gas & Electric, AIG, QVC, Walgreens, and Kaiser Permanente have all signed up to use a new cybersecurity framework that could facilitate future information sharing (but doesn’t appear to include that provision now), according to the White House.

But some groups are signing on for full information sharing, starting now. They include the Cyber Threat Alliance, which includes Palo Alto Networks, Symantec, Intel Security and Fortinet; the Entertainment Software Association, which represents Sony and Microsoft’s video game divisions, as well as many more of the largest video game companies in the country; Crowdstrike, a security firm; Box, a cloud storage company; and FireEye, a cybersecurity firm.
