Drawing on a broad legal and policy framework, and in concert with partner offices and institutions, the CLPT provides oversight, advice, guidance, education, and training. CLPT engages in public outreach and communication initiatives that foster awareness of how the IC accomplishes its intelligence mission while protecting Constitutional values.
The CLPT also reviews, assesses, and, where appropriate, investigates complaints and other information indicating possible abuses of civil liberties and privacy in the administration of ODNI programs and operations.
Last summer, the Computer Science and Telecommunications Board convened a workshop to bring together segments of the intelligence community, academia and the private sector. The purpose of the workshop was to advance dialogue in several main areas, including the privacy implications of emerging technologies; various public and personal attitudes toward privacy; and ethical approaches to data collection.
The National Academies of Science published the results of the two-day workshop in the booklet “Privacy Research and Best Practices: Summary of a Workshop for the Intelligence Community.”
