I was reading the NSA’s recently published draft of the new Cybersecurity Policy Framework (CPF), which outlines how it plans to use the power of the National Security Agency (NSA) to monitor the Internet, monitor your email, and spy on the personal lives of people who interact with the Internet.
I’d never thought of it in terms of a law, but the draft was actually drafted by the Department of Homeland Security, which oversees the NSA.
It’s a law-making body, and one that’s supposed to be tasked with making policy.
But that’s not what happened in the case of the CPF, as it has now been revealed by the Intercept.
The NSA’s Cybersecurity Information Sharing and Analysis Center (CISAC), the agency’s primary cyber-security organization, was formed in 2010.
It oversees everything from the NSA to the Pentagon, and is responsible for coordinating with federal agencies to share cyber-threat information and information sharing between them.
But it wasn’t until 2016 that the CISAC actually went public.
It was supposed to have an initial budget of $4 billion and an initial staff of around 15,000 people, but it had only six months to work out the details of its plans.
The government has long argued that the best way to get information about cyberattacks and other potential threats to the nation is to share it with the public.
This includes creating cyber-attack alerts, which would notify the public when someone is actively trying to hack into a computer, and then providing an alert to other government agencies.
That would also allow the public to know if their information was being collected, which they could then correct.
The CISAC, however, has never provided details about how it was designed, or how it would work.
The Intercept obtained the CISac’s internal documents from the DHS, and found that the agency had no idea what it was actually supposed to do.
In a leaked internal memo, a CISAC official explained the agency planned to work with private sector companies to share its threat information, but that it didn’t have the time or budget to do that.
CISAC officials told the Intercept they were told that if the agency wanted to share information about an incident with the government, it had to request the government to share the information itself, which could take months or even years.
That way, the information wouldn’t leak to the public and could be used to target the real attackers.
The official said the agency was told that sharing the information would not be required, and that it would only be used in emergencies.
But the Intercept found that CISAC was still working on the issue and had not shared any information with the NSA since 2016.
The documents obtained by the NSA are not yet public, and the agency did not respond to a request for comment from The Intercept.
CISAD also reportedly told the agency it had plans to set up a separate agency within the department to oversee cybersecurity, but had no such plans.
A DHS spokesperson told The Intercept that the department is working on a cyber-response plan, but could not comment further.
The agency’s internal memo also suggests that it might not have a long-term plan for cyber-defense.
The document says that “Cybersecurity is an ongoing, high-risk issue for the U.S. and its allies.”
The CISAA’s director, Mark W. Riedel, told the DHS in 2016 that he thought the agency should have a cyber response team to respond to cybersecurity incidents.
The response team would include the head of cybersecurity for each government agency, as well as a team of cyber-policy experts who would be responsible for reviewing the threat scenarios the agencies face, and preparing a response strategy to meet the needs of the government and the public, the memo said.
Ruedel, who had also previously been the head and chief technology officer of the Defense Department’s cyber-defence arm, said in 2016 the CISAA could be an effective tool in fighting cyberattacks.
He added that the organization should be able to respond in a timely manner and could assist in identifying and mitigating potential threats.
But a spokesperson for the Department at the time, Brian O. McKeown, told The Verge in an email that the Cybersecurity Strategy and Policy Committee, the group responsible for developing CISAA, had not yet completed the committee’s recommendations for the organization.
The spokesperson also said the department’s budget had not changed since 2016, and said that CISAA “continues to have its mission to strengthen our nation’s cyber defenses.”
“We are focused on making sure that our cyber defences are up to date, secure and robust,” the spokesperson said.
The DHS has said it wants to create a new agency within CISAA to focus on cybersecurity.
But there are other agencies, including the National Institute of Standards and Technology, that have similar missions and capabilities, including in the areas of computer networks, the Internet of Things, and cybersecurity.
A spokesperson for McKeoad told The Guardian that “the department is
