CSA Official Press Release
Official CSA Snowden/NSA/Patriot Act Survey
We are hoping to generate a rational and valuable global dialogue, and will make this survey public. Please take the time to answer it. It is a few short questions, you can take as little or as much time as you see fit. During June of 2013, news of a whistleblower, US government contractor Eric Snowden has dominated global headlines. Snowden provided evidence of US government access to information from telecommunications and Internet providers via secret court orders as specified by the Patriot Act. As this news became widespread, it has led to a great deal of debate and soul searching about appropriate access to an individual's digital information, both within the United States and any other country. The purpose of this survey is to collect a broad spectrum of CSA member opinions about this news, and to understand how this impacts your attitude about using public cloud providers as well as any other broadly available Internet services. Several questions are specifically intended for either US or non-US citizens, please be aware that you must provide your country of residence to participate. Because the Cloud Security Alliance is a global organization and many information technology dependencies cross national borders, CSA encourages international participation in this survey. CSA is undertaking this effort to increase community participation in discussing this important issue, we are not taking a policy position. CSA will provide the full results of this survey to all participants who wish to register their email address. We will publish a summary of the results on our website in July, 2013.
