Einstein … Say Aaah!

In President Obama’s May 29, 2009 speech, he underlines the statement that he will not allow surveillance of citizens’ personal information and intrusions on their privacy. However, this does not appear to allow for the oversight and data-discovery requirements for an effective Einstein program. To the extent that access to sensitive data is generally held to be permitted only on a “need to know” basis, there surely must be a way to protect data regarding law-abiding individuals from inappropriate access by unauthorized persons, while still capturing important information about those perpetrating unlawful acts, and so that someone can act on that information. One has to believe that such technology and procedures exist or can be developed and implemented … so that Einstein can smile once again.
