SAN FRANCISCO -- Think the Edward Snowden-NSA storyline is played out? Think again.
"I think this story is going to keep going for at least a year, probably longer," said Bruce Schneier, chief technology officer with Co3 Systems, who is working with The Intercept's Glenn Greenwald to analyze and report on the NSA documents allegedly stolen and leaked by former contractor Edward Snowden. "There's an enormous pile of documents; they're very technical [and] hard to understand, and as you go through them, you find stories."
In this interview recorded at the 2014 RSA Conference, SearchSecurity Editorial Director Robert Richardson sits down with Schneier to discuss his role in reviewing the Snowden documents. Schneier also discusses what has surprised him most about the NSA surveillance revelations that have already come to light, and why it's so hard to prove which companies have collaborated with the NSA on surveillance efforts.
