Googles Response Regarding "PRISM" Allegations

Googles official word on these recent Allegation's. Read the whole blog post before you post a response. We all have an interest in this recent news all over the media.

Quote:
Dear Google users—

You may be aware of press reports alleging that Internet companies have joined a secret U.S. government program called PRISM to give the National Security Agency direct access to our servers. As Google’s CEO and Chief Legal Officer, we wanted you to have the facts.

First, we have not joined any program that would give the U.S. government—or any other government—direct access to our servers. Indeed, the U.S. government does not have direct access or a “back door” to the information stored in our data centers. We had not heard of a program called PRISM until yesterday.

Second, we provide user data to governments only in accordance with the law. Our legal team reviews each and every request, and frequently pushes back when requests are overly broad or don’t follow the correct process. Press reports that suggest that Google is providing open-ended access to our users’ data are false, period. Until this week’s reports, we had never heard of the broad type of order that Verizon received—an order that...

Anyone who's been paying attention knows that "in accordance with the law" means any time the government decides.

That's why many officials were after the whistleblowers...It is not only with internet, the roots of that come from the whole US surveillance programs on ALL citizens without discrimination. I am not sure how efficient it is, but it involved a lot of taxpayers money instead of profiling the right people.

Think of all billions dollars spent that could rebuild bridges or infrastructure that could benefits all citizens instead of spying us. think about all taxes reductions that could help employers hiring Americans, etc...

Read the entire article, here is just a part of it:

How Google and Facebook Cooperated with the NSA and PRISM

Quote:
First, it turns out Facebook and Google weren't lying. The government does not have "direct access" to their servers. But they did make something special for the NSA to make obtaining the specially requested information as easy as a ransom hand-off:

In at least two cases, at Google and Facebook, one of the plans discussed was to build separate, secure portals, like a digital version of the secure physical rooms that have long existed for classified information, in some instances on company servers. Through these online rooms, the government would request data, companies would deposit it and the government would retrieve it, people briefed on the discussions said.

So the government doesn't have "direct access" to Facebook and Google servers, but there is a process in place so the NSA can request the information, and there's a special, secure place for them to retrieve that information. The NSA wants information on person X so they send a request to Google or Facebook. The tech company gathers all the information it has on person X and deposits that information onto the secure server set up for the NSA. Once the information is in place, the NSA accesses the secure server and retrieves the requested information. So the government doesn't have "direct access," or even "backdoor access," as has been implied.

Asking the U.S. government to allow Google to publish more national security request

More news from Google.

Quote:
This morning we sent the following letter to the offices of the Attorney General and the Federal Bureau of Investigation. Read the full text below. -Ed.
Dear Attorney General Holder and Director Mueller

Google has worked tremendously hard over the past fifteen years to earn our users’ trust. For example, we offer encryption across our services; we have hired some of the best security engineers in the world; and we have consistently pushed back on overly broad government requests for our users’ data.

We have always made clear that we comply with valid legal requests. And last week, the Director of National Intelligence acknowledged that service providers have received Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) requests.

Assertions in the press that our compliance with these requests gives the...

Six European states take aim at Google privacy policy

European regulators moved a step closer to penalizing Google for the way it handles user data after the search engine refused to change its privacy policy.
