The National Security Agency this week granted FedScoop an exclusive interview with John DeLong, the agency’s director of compliance. I sat down with DeLong at the National Cryptologic Museum across from NSA headquarters, and he agreed to a wide-ranging discussion of what his office does at NSA and the lengths to which NSA goes to ensure it operates within the confines of the law.
DeLong oversees a staff of 300 and manages his own budget authority focused solely on compliance. Throughout our discussion, he describes the different components of NSA’s compliance program and some of the latest research efforts that may one day produce new, privacy-ready technologies.
