Statement Regarding Short and Long Term Agenda of PCLOB

On July 23, 2014, Greg Nojeim offered an oral statement to PCLOB on behalf of CDT. This statement is submitted in connection with that meeting. CDT urges PCLOB, as part of its medium and long-term agenda, to examine and report upon the effect on privacy and civil liberties of:

  • Surveillance conducted under Executive Order 12333 (“EO 12333”);
  • surveillance under all intelligence authorities on non-U.S. persons’ rights to privacy, free expression and redress, including implementation of Presidential Policy Directive 28 (“PPD-28)”;
  • cybersecurity measures; and
  • the activities of federal agencies at fusion centers.
