The Central Intelligence Agency on Wednesday unveiled revised rules for collecting, analyzing and storing information on American citizens. According to Reuters, the CIA has updated the rules for the information age and is publishing them in full for the first time. At a briefing at the agency's headquarters in Langley, Virginia, CIA General Counsel Caroline Krass said the guidelines are designed "in a manner that protects the privacy and civil rights of the American people." The new rules were released amid continued public discomfort over the government's surveillance powers. It's an issue that gained prominence following revelations in 2013 by former government contractor Edward Snowden that the National Security Agency secretly collected the communications data of millions of ordinary Americans. Krass said that over time, the original rules, known as the "Attorney General Guidelines," became a "patchwork of policies and procedures" that failed to keep pace with the development of technology that can store massive amounts of digital data.
