ODNI Eyes Social Media as Information Source

SocialMediaOffice of the Director of National Intelligence leaders are continuing their efforts to issue a security executive agent directive that will set policies and guidelines on social media usage, Federal News Radio reported Thursday.

Nicole Ogrysko writes that the directive — still under review at the Office of Management and Budget — looks to detail ODNI staff on the proposed policies in an effort to use publicly-available information for use.

Bill Evanina, director of ODNI’s National Counterintelligence and Security Center, said at an Intelligence and National Security Alliance-hosted event in Chantilly, Virginia Thursday social media is an area to be monitored as agencies continue to evaluate its employees with access to information, Ogrysko reported.

Kemp Ensor, director of security at the National Security Agency, called social media a “void” that NSA wants to patch through its own insider threat programs, according to the report.
