Stratecast Confidential: The Impact of the NSA on the Big Data Market - and Global Communications

The National Security Agency/Central Security Service of the United States, or NSA/CSS, has inserted itself into the realm of Big Data. The intent of this report is to discuss how it has done so, and to analyze the issues and impacts resulting from its actions, both on the populace at large and specifically on Big Data. The report’s main conclusions and takeaways are as follows:

1. The NSA/CSS (referred to hereafter in this report simply as the NSA) now has access to detailed information about much of the electronic communication in the U.S. This includes virtually all mobile communications, virtually all online communications, whether mobile or computer-based, and some landline business communications.

2. The NSA is collecting data from these sources as a result of agreements it has specifically imposed on mobile operators and Internet infrastructure providers—through electronic “back doors” it has persuaded providers to insert in their software and systems, and through its own ability to troll communications highways and collect data at will.

3. The NSA claims to simply be interested in, and collecting, metadata, a term that is roughly equivalent to “data about the data.” In the case of what the NSA is claiming, this means information such as call origination and destination points, call duration, where someone accessed the Web and how much time they spent online; not the content of calls or emails.

4. The NSA is far from the only entity that appears to be trampling on the notion of personal privacy in pursuit of information it believes it needs to achieve its ends. The private sector, too, is teeming with examples of companies obtaining personal user data through questionable means, and deploying it in even more questionable ways.
