NSA reform proposals contain gaps when it comes to privacy concerns: Queen's University expert

2014-03-26

Queen’s University security expert Adam Molnar is available to comment on the Obama Administration’s Friday deadline on National Security Agency reform.

There are currently two plans being proposed to reform NSA activities.

“While each of these proposals place some limits on the collection of bulk telephone data, each contain considerable gaps when it comes to privacy concerns,” says Dr. Molnar. “There is no real indication that either proposal will significantly limit the surveillance overreach in the US when it comes to the collection and access to digital communication. In many ways, the proposals continue to misinterpret key sections of law that facilitate the very existence of mass state surveillance programs.”
