NSA’s Top Lawyer Takes Privacy and Cybersecurity Job but Won’t Help Clients Avoid Government Collection of their Records

The National Security Agency’s top lawyer for a rocky three years during which massive government surveillance programs were exposed is returning to private practice, where he will put his experience to use on privacy and cybersecurity issues.

But Rajesh De, the now-former NSA general counsel, says he’s not going to become a go-to person for clients interested in securing their networks from feared government surveillance. “I certainly would not be using information that I gleaned in government to benefit clients, that is for sure,” he says. “At the same time, I’m not going to erase my mind to the experience I’ve had.”
