Investigate Surveillance Powers and the Industry Sustaining Them

Government surveillance is enabled by an industry seeking to deploy their technology across the world.

Globally law enforcement and security agencies are using new technology and capabilities for surveillance. At the same time, a global industry is developing and selling sophisticated surveillance technology, as well as providing training, personnel and other services to intelligence and security agencies around the world. This multinational industry, which includes some of the world’s biggest and most influential arms companies as well as big tech companies, is also lobbying government authorities and other bodies to sell more of their products and change laws to make surveillance easier.
