At Rackspace, transparency is one of our core values; and on Friday, Texas Lt. Gov. David Dewhurst swung by our San Antonio headquarters to share a glimpse into plans to increase transparency in government and to protect the online privacy and data of citizens.
The NSA’s PRISM data collection programs and resulting probes have ignited serious concerns around government surveillance and privacy, and have citizens, foreign governments, journalists and members of Congress questioning what’s being tracked and why.
The National Security Agency and its PRISM initiative have prompted many Internet users to question when the government can see their data, and under what circumstances. We think this is a good time to reiterate how Rackspace handles customer data.
