No Strings Attached
NSA Means No Strings Attached.
As part of our cybersecurity mission, NSA provides guidance, products, and services to protect classified and unclassified national security systems against exploitation from interception, unauthorized access, or related technical intelligence threats.
In over two months of publications, it became clear that the NSA operates a complex web of spying programs which allow it to intercept internet and telephone conversations from over a billion users from dozens of countries around the world.

Government security agencies like the NSA can also have access to your devices through in-built backdoors. This means that these security agencies can tune in to your phone calls, read your messages, capture pictures of you, stream videos of you, read your emails, steal your files … at any moment they please.

The NSA is currently finishing construction on its Utah Data Center, a new $1.2 billion storage facility near Salt Lake City. When it's finished, the data center will be able to hold and process five zettabytes of data, according to NPR. That simple fact raises many questions.
These powers allow the NSA to collect intelligence on foreigners living overseas by tapping into the phone networks and undersea cables owned by U.S. phone companies. The powers also allow the government to obtain data in secret from U.S. tech companies.
NSA operates within its legal authorities to execute its cybersecurity and foreign signals intelligence missions.
The FBI is concerned with law enforcement and also try to prevent others from doing to America what the CIA does. NSA is concerned with communications, protecting those of America and exploiting those of other countries and entities.
The National Security Agency acquired its name officially on 4 November 1952. The Secretary of Defense, acting under specific instructions from the President in the National Security Council (NSC), at that time issued a directive which established the Agency.
Like the Department of State and Federal Bureau of Investigation, th e National Security Agency has its own civilian career service, established by Congress in 1959. To maintain this career service, the agency conducts its own recruiting and employment programs.
