New security measures, including a new polygraph question, will help avoid leaks from intelligence employees, announced James Clapper, director of National Intelligence. Lawyer John Mahoney analyzes the legal responsibilities between agencies and federal employees.
Republican senators on Tuesday welcomed a move by the director of national intelligence to snuff out leaks of classified information but insisted that a special counsel is needed to investigate the Obama administration and recent disclosures.

Agencies are struggling to keep up with the tremendous amount of data being created every day. DIA deputy director David Shedd said too much information and not having the right IT to sift through it is the biggest remaining challenge the government faces.

President Obama recently signed the 2012 intelligence authorization bill, which requires status reports on released Guantanamo Bay detainees.
As the intelligence community looks for ways to cut its budget over the coming decade, it's turning to IT efficiency to be a big contributor. The director of national intelligence says he intends for agencies to get half of their budget savings by implementing more collaborative and common IT architectures, and migrating more services to cloud computing. DNI James Clapper says the stretch goal will take some up-front investment, but he hopes the IT initiatives will pay big dividends over the next ten years.
Chief information officers in the intelligence community said despite cultural challenges, it makes sense to treat the IC as one IT enterprise. They owe an implementation plan to IC agency heads by the end of this year.
