Meeting the Threat of Terrorism: Protecting Privacy and Civil Liberties in a Networked Information Environment

July 1, 2009 | Brief
Markle Task Force

In the fight against terrorism, we must deploy 21st century solutions that protect America’s most traditional values: civil liberties and privacy. America’s national security depends on information sharing—technology and policy working in a collaborative environment so the right people get the right information at the right time, to stop terrorist attacks. This information sharing framework succeeds only if Americans trust it will respect their privacy and protect civil liberties. The Markle Task Force offers principles and policies to meet the challenge of strengthening national security and protecting civil liberties in a networked information environment.
