Department of Homeland Security
2012 Data Mining Report to Congress
You can access the report here (pdf).
If it were on Amazon, I can just imagine the review: “Chock-full of government-speak, this report is a must-read for acronym lovers everywhere!”
And not for nothing, but yesterday, during the Location Tracking and Biometrics conference, Judge Kozinski asked what prevents the government from purchasing commercial databases that companies like Experian sell access to. The answer is “nothing.” Read the DHS report section on Analytical Framework for Intelligence (AFI), which begins on p. 17 of the report.
