NSA Is Being Reorganized in Its Response to Security Holes

NSA Is Being Reorganized in Its Response to Security Holes

A reshuffling of the NSA could force American spies to choose between keeping hackers out or acting like them to collect intelligence. The National Security Agency will soon announce an internal reorganization that will merge its two opposite cybersecurity missions.


The first division, the Information Assurance Directorate (IAD), cooperates with private firms and government networks trying to plug security holes before hackers can exploit them. The opposite division, the Signals Intelligence Directorate (SID), on the contrary, strives to leave such security holes unpatched and use them to hack into foreign systems. It is not clear why the agency decided to merge these two bodies – in fact, this goes against the recommendation of computer security experts, technology executives and even the Obama administration’s surveillance reform commission. Apparently, they all argue that the two missions are contradictory and need to be separated, because the agency could choose not to tell a tech firm to patch a security flaw if it is going to use it to hack into a targeted machine. Who is under risk in this case? Of course, ordinary citizens – consumers.

In response, the NSA claimed that a flatter structure would help make it more agile as foreign hackers become increasingly brazen. As you may remember, the US Office of Personnel Management was hit by an enormous breach linked to China back in 2015, and more recently, there was news about Iran-linked attacks on the critical infrastructure of the United States. Nevertheless, the agency may see more tension choosing between offense and defense: its hackers could probably work with its defenders on where to search for software vulnerabilities or how to model enemy response.

Nevertheless, the industry experts believe that having the IAD embedded in a foreign intelligence organization will lead to potential conflicts of interest, since the NSA has experienced the tension between the two sides during the last ten years. For instance, the agency may make private tech firms less likely to cooperate with it on defense. The supporters of the merger believe that any companies skeptical of the new structure probably already weren’t willing to cooperate with the National Security Agency anyway.

Admiral_Smith avatarI believe the NSA was originally made during the cold war ear and needs a little reconfiguration because the cold war is gone from the 1960s. The NSA does work with the military for security so who really cares. The NSA is NOT the CIA nor the FBI. They are the ones that crack online encryption first for American security reasons. I think of NSA as old white haired baby boomers that just sit on their computers in their office all say long looking for signs of communism.

Datashift avatarIt's official the NSA is the bailors in a sinking boat full of holes. Keep plugging the crappy boat instead of redesigning a better titanic.
