Former NSA employee: difficult to perform tasks by too much data

The U.S. Secret Service NSA has so much data that it drowns, and it is difficult to effectively carry out its duties. Claims that a former employee. Furthermore, does the availability of data from many innocent people abuse in hand, he says.

William Binney, oud-NSA-medewerker Because the NSA so much data available, it is impossible to fish out the suspects says former NSA employee William Binney, who worked thirty years for the U.S. Secret Service, told The Wall Street Journal. As a result, the amount of data hinders the work of the secret service just while which should make it easier.

Past six years appeared revelations of documents whistleblower Edward Snowden had stolen from the internal systems of the NSA that the secret service has access to large amounts of information. From the Netherlands gathered for example in a month metadata of 1.8 million calls in other European countries is that much more. Secret services often collect metadata because it is easier to analyze than data as recorded conversations or message content and metadata because even though someone may be followed in detail .

The huge amount of data also makes a great temptation to make use of that information, says Brinney abuse. Because there are data from many innocents are in the system, for example, employees can check whether their partner is cheating. It was found earlier that such incidents do occur.

In the Netherlands, the secret service AIVD’ll just collect more data, as revealed recently. Preparations to buy all these data to analyze, the system began in 2009, as revealed during a hearing in parliament this month. U.S. President Barack Obama will soon decide whether the NSA in the future, less data needs to collect. A judge called the collection of data recently Orwellian .
