New Surveillance Reports for Intelligence Community

The Director of National Intelligence has announced that  the Intelligence Community will release annually "aggregate information concerning" the use of national security authorities. The reports will include the use of both FISA and National Security Letter legal authorities. EPIC has previously recommended improved reporting of FISA activities, similar to the wiretap reports issued by the Administrative Office of the U.S. Courts. News reports indicate that the Intelligence Community paid Internet companies $394 m in 2011 to provide customer data to the US government.  For more information, see EPIC: FISA Reform.
