Google Teams Up With The NSA/CIA

Infoworld reports:

In a partnership that may inspire some to put their tinfoil hats on, Google has reportedly turned to the National Security Agency for help in improving the company’s security infrastructure.

The new partnership is still being finalized, but will be aimed at preventing future The Washington Post. This is not the first time the NSA has been tapped to help a U.S. corporation with cyber security, but the purported partnership would certainly be unique since Google’s servers house such a vast collection of user data including search histories, email, and personal documents.

My favorite part of the article:

“The deal does not mean the NSA will be viewing users’ searches or email accounts or that Google will be sharing proprietary data,” the Post reported.
