Big Transparency for the NSA: Perspectives on Spying and Privacy
Brown University’s Watson Institute for International Studies hosted an event on December 4, 2013 that included a panel discussion with John DeLong, Chief Compliance Officer for the National Security Agency and Alexander Joel, the Civil Liberties Protection Officer at the Office of the Director of National Intelligence.
Via the Watson Institute:
Big Transparency for the NSA: Perspectives on Spying and Transparency will examine the continuing explosive revelations about the American intelligence community’s global operations and the resulting crisis in public trust and confidence. It will also explore the equally historic, if less discussed, shift toward transparency that the government’s defense of these operations has involved, including significantly lifting the veil on the secret FISA court and releasing detailed information about the intelligence community’s privacy and compliance regime that was previously classified at the highest levels.
