Near daily news reports remind us that we live in an intelligence world. The U.S. National Security Agency (NSA) collects terabytes of global communications. Most famously, the NSA's PRISM and UPSTREAM programs intercepted and monitored the global internet-based communications and telephone calls of foreign nationals, as well as those initiated or received by persons outside of the United States.
