Press Releases 2015

Congratulations to all of the distinguished women who were honored by FedScoop and recognized as D.C.’s Top 50 Women in Technology for 2015.

On February 27, 2015, the Director of National Intelligence declassified and disclosed publicly that the U.S. government had filed an application with the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court seeking renewal of the authority to collect telephony metadata in bulk, and that the FISC renewed that authority.

Early last year in a speech at the Department of Justice, President Obama announced a transition that would end the Section 215 bulk telephony metadata program as it previously existed, and that the government would establish a mechanism that preserves the capabilities we need without the government holding this bulk data.

The National Security Strategy, written by our country’s elected leaders, serves as the foundational document for the National Intelligence Strategy, which provides the intelligence community with our mission priorities.
Consistent with 50 U.S.C. 3306(a), the Director of National Intelligence is disclosing to the public the aggregate amount of appropriations requested for Fiscal Year 2016.
