What's Next in Government Surveillance

What's Next in Government Surveillance | INTELLIGENT WORLD TODAY | Scoop.it
Modern targeted surveillance is likely to involve actively breaking into an adversary’s computer network and installing malicious software designed to take over that network and “exfiltrate” data—that’s NSA talk for stealing it. To put it more plainly, the easiest way for someone to eavesdrop on your communications isn’t to intercept them in transit anymore; it’s to hack your computer.

And there’s a lot of government hacking going on.
Al Cannistra's insight:

where to now?

U.S. to China: We Hacked Your Internet Gear We Told You Not to Hack | INTELLIGENT WORLD TODAY | Scoop.it
The headline news is that the NSA has surreptitiously "burrowed its way into nearly all the security architecture" sold the by the world's largest computer networking companies, including everyone from U.S. mainstays Cisco and Juniper to Chinese giant Huawei.

Where America’s newest citizens come from, by state

Where America’s newest citizens come from, by state | INTELLIGENT WORLD TODAY | Scoop.it
Mexico is the most popular country of origin among the 779,929 immigrants who became naturalized Americans in the fiscal year that ended Sept. 30, 2013. But in 26 states and the District of Columbia, the biggest group of naturalized citizens is somewhere else.
Al Cannistra's insight:

THE MEXICANS ARE TAKING OVER!  

Nah - Donald, don't have a coronary...  this chart shows naturalized citizens - the ones doing it the right way - key word = "citizens" and welcome aboard...   and before any Demos run with it - the mention of the Donald is in fun - he is NOT targeting anybody other than "illegals" regardless of where they came from - so remember that in voting - Hispanics are not a target - illegals are - and if you ARE a citizen - think about that - carefully!

Those Times the NSA Hacked America's Allies

Those Times the NSA Hacked America's Allies | INTELLIGENT WORLD TODAY | Scoop.it
Then Director of National Intelligence James Clapper had Schoeder’s successor’s personal cell phone put under surveillance. Angela Merkel’s personal cell phone. An ally . It may just have been face-saving for President Obama, but the White House leaked that Obama was surprised and disturbed that her personal phone had been targeted. This leak tells us that Clapper and the NSA were acting without the president’s knowledge. Yet no one was fired over it. It makes you think maybe the US cyberspies are an authority unto themselves and this elected democracy thing is so eighteenth century.
