(Gawkwire) – Internet Infrastructure Coalition (i2Coalition) Co-Founder and Board Chairman Christian Dawson today released the following statement discussing the recommendations put forth by the White House’s NSA review panel:
“The right balance needs to be found between security and an open Internet, and the NSA review panel’s recommendations are a good step towards finding that balance.” said Dawson. “Companies that make up the Internet infrastructure industry face this challenge on a regular basis, and we’re grateful to the panel for taking the views of the tech community seriously. These recommendations, along with the USA Freedom Act which has bi-partisan support in both chambers of Congress, address the concerns the i2Coalition has been raising about the NSA’s surveillance program, and we encourage the President to accept them.”
