Digital basic rights, surveillance and transparency

Intelligence and law enforcement agencies use digital technology and big data to increase security. But they inevitably interfere with basic rights, collecting and exchanging personal information and invading privacy. This weakens the confidence of citizens, businesses, and public authorities in the Internet, in encryption, and in politics. Thus, what is needed are constructive ideas on how government monitoring in a networked society can be effectively controlled, reasonably limited, and sufficiently documented.
