Subsentio Comments On The Extension of FISA

Tue, 15 Jan 2013 09:00:00 EST

DENVER, Colorado, January 15, 2013 – Subsentio, a Trusted Third Party service bureau for Lawfully Authorized Electronic Surveillance (LAES), today announced that it supports the recent extension of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act of 1978 (FISA) as amended in 2008.

Marcus Thomas, former Assistant Director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) and a member of Subsentio's Advisory Board explained the importance of FISA. 'The ability to monitor the activities of foreign nationals who intend to do harm to the United States and its citizens is an absolutely critical tool for law enforcement agencies. Many lives have been saved and will continue to be saved with the extension of this legislation. We applaud the US Congress and President Obama for their foresight in keeping FISA in place for another 5 years.'

'One of the least understood aspects of FISA is the notion that it is a rubber stamp for warrantless wiretaps,' added Ward Jackson, Chief Security Officer at Subsentio. 'We've only had 2 warrantless wiretaps at Subsentio and they were both criminal exigent circumstances that involved the kidnapping of a child. FISA is different. Each FISA docket that we have been involved with has always been accompanied by the appropriate paperwork. As a matter of policy, Subsentio would never initiate a wiretap without the proper authority from the courts, FISA or criminal. Since all FISA's are classified, we recommend that each carrier has someone with a Secret / Top Secret security clearance on staff or on retainer to review the order.'

Erik Cecil, General Counsel for Subsentio expanded on the company's policy of reviewing all court orders prior to executing the warrant. 'On occasion, court orders can be written incorrectly. This may happen because the law enforcement agency may be understaffed and overworked thus unable to review the state and federal legal issues that may come up in this rapidly changing area of technology and privacy regulation. Subsentio carefully reviews all court orders. Moreover because Subsentio has excellent relationships with law enforcement, we are also able to expeditiously obtain corrections where they are legally required. This protects Subsentio's clients who may be liable if the warrant is invalid and who regardless, want no questions as to the validity of the electronic surveillance they provide to law enforcement. It also benefits law enforcement because valid court orders means they can do their jobs more effectively and efficiently. We encourage all service providers to review any court ordered request for electronic surveillance, including FISA orders, prior to initiating and providing any requested electronic surveillance.'

Subsentio, Inc. is trusted by both service providers and law enforcement agencies to perform court ordered lawful electronic surveillance. Based in Centennial, CO the company serves landline, mobile wireless, rural local exchange carriers, wireless carriers and national and regional VoIP providers.
