    On today's episode of Loud & Clear, Brian Becker is joined by William Binney, a former NSA technical director who became a legendary whistleblower; and by Bryan Ford, head of the Decentralized/Distributed Systems lab at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Lausanne.

    A massive cyberattack affected hospitals and companies around the world beginning last Friday, with hundreds of thousands of computers in more than 50 countries affected. It turned out that this huge attack was carried out with cyber tools developed by the NSA. Why is the NSA unable to control its cyber arsenal? How does the NSA undermine both cybersecurity and democracy?

    William Binney will be speaking on May 30th at the European Parliament about the issues of mass surveillance and bulk data collection.
