The Office of the Director of National Intelligence (ODNI) has issued an interim report on the implementation of Presidential Policy Directive/PPD-28, Signals Intelligence Activities. The directive was issued in January of this year and establishes new principles and strengthens oversight on signals intelligence activities. The interim progress report recommends ensuring “privacy and civil liberties are integral considerations in signals intelligence activities,” say Alexander Joel, CIPP/US, CIPP/G, and Robert Litt, in their announcement. Among the key points denoted by the Civil Liberties Protection Officer and the General Counsel for ODNI are a call for improving how privacy and civil liberties complaints are handled and reviewing training “to ensure that the workforce understands the responsibility to protect personal information, regardless of nationality” with completion of the training “a prerequisite for accessing personal information in unevaluated signals intelligence.”
