Book Description:

This volume is a result of an activity to evaluate U.S. signals intelligence practices. This study is among several of the administration’s responses to heightened public concern about U.S. intelligence agency surveillance programs that followed Edward Snowden’s disclosure of numerous internal National Security Agency (NSA) documents beginning in mid-2013.

The committee assembled for this study included individuals with expertise in national security law; counterterrorism operations; privacy and civil liberties as they relate to electronic communications; data mining; large-scale systems development; software development; Intelligence Community (IC) needs as they relate to research and development; and networking and social media.
