Schneier Joins EFF Board; Suit Filed Over FBI Database
PRIVACY—U.S.June 28, 2013
The Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF) has announced that security expert Bruce Schneier has joined its Board of Directors. The EFF said in a press release that Schneier’s expertise is especially important to the organization now as “we learn more and more about the unconstitutional surveillance programs from the National Security Agency (NSA) and the depth and breadth of data the NSA is collecting on the public." Meanwhile, the EFF has filed a lawsuit in California asking the judge to require the FBI to respond to its Freedom of Information Act requests about the agency’s forthcoming biometrics database.
