Abstract

The article discusses and compares the proposed legislation governing the use of surveillance powers in the United Kingdom (UK), namely the Investigatory Powers Bill (now the Investigatory Powers Act 2016) and the United States (US) Cybersecurity Information Sharing Act 2015. These laws reflect the UK and US governments' attempt to clarify and consolidate the use of the surveillance methods, whilst attempting to address their citizens' significant privacy and security concerns. The piece examines the extent to which the proposed legislation has achieved these aims.
