So far, the Central Intelligence Agency largely has remained out of the spotlight of snooping scandals that have touched agencies such at the National Security Agency and the Justice Department.
It may not stay that way, if Ira Hunt, the agency’s chief technology officer, is right.
At a recent conference held by GigaOm Structure Data, Hunt said the agency wants to know everything there is to know and keep all the information forever so that it can “connect the dots” whenever it chooses.
“We have learned … that information has time value,” he said. “The value of any piece of information is only known when you connect it to something else in a further point of time,” he said.
That means, Hunt said, the agency is driven “into the mode of fundamentally trying to collect everything and hang onto it forever.”
