All U.S. agencies with counterterrorism programs that collect or qmineq personal data -- such as phone records or Web sites visited -- should be required to evaluate the programs' effectiveness, lawfulness, and impacts on privacy. A framework is offered that agencies can use to evaluate such information-based programs, both classified and unclassified. The book urges Congress to re-examine existing privacy law to assess how privacy can be protected in current and future programs and recommends that any individuals harmed by violations of privacy be given a meaningful form of redress. Two specific technologies are examined: data mining and behavioral surveillance. Regarding data mining, the book concludes that although these methods have been useful in the private sector for spotting consumer fraud, they are less helpful for counterterrorism because so little is known about what patterns indicate terrorist activity. Regarding behavioral surveillance in a counterterrorist context, the book concludes that although research and development on certain aspects of this topic are warranted, there is no scientific consensus on whether these techniques are ready for operational use at all in counterterrorism.Protecting Individual Privacy in the Struggle Against Terrorists: A Framework for Program Assessment Committee on Technical and ... and Other National Goals, National Research Council ISBN: 0-309-12489-1, 376 pages, 6 x 9, (2008) This PDF is available from the ... by the National Academies Press, you may contact our customer service department tollfree at 888-624-8373, visit us online, or send ananbsp;...
