A group of 15 privacy, security and national security experts will convene to help build a framework that balances individual privacy protection with the law enforcement needs of intelligence agencies, The Christian Science Monitor’s Passcode reports. "We need to get to an equilibrium about the needs of the state versus the needs of an individual,” said Center for Democracy & Technology President Nuala O’Connor, CIPP/G, CIPP/US. The Digital Equilibrium Project aims to create and release a set of guidelines for the public and private sectors. Former Department of Homeland Security Secretary Michael Chertoff said, “A framework of guiding principles, norms of behavior and eventually laws and policies in this area will not only protect individual privacy, it will enable law enforcement and other government agencies to act with more speed, clarity, and context in the pursuit of their missions.”
