The U.S. House passed an amendment for curbing two activities of the NSA. The vote comes as welcome news to high tech vendors concerned about data privacy.
Submerged in secrecy, the NSA has a prolonged past of gathering intelligence for security, foreign relations and other national security motives.
If you who must disclose information with organizations, make sure they have security protocols in place to protect data privacy in the age of the NSA.
Information sharing should bring concerns for businesses around how to effectively secure the data being shared from the NSA-like government.
Stepping up security against cyber-attacks makes perfect sense considering all of the data breaches that have occurred , like Target, Neiman Marcus, etc.
In the eyes of some, NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden is a hero who leaked information about top secret state-sponsored surveillance operations to journalists, stoking a global debate on privacy. But from the point of view of his employer, he hardly turned out to be a model staff member.
The prevalence of cloud computing, cloud-based storage and collaboration products only emphasizes these concerns. Many organizations are confused about regulations that protect data in different countries and jurisdictions, and don’t know what steps to take to ensure their cloud collaboration vendor can provide the appropriate protection.
