The impact of Edward Snowden’s leaks underscore profound unresolved ethical and policy issues relating to post 9/11 electronically enabled intelligence collection in liberal democracies. In this chapter, six different ‘impacts’ are used as a frame to assess the future of whistle blowers post Snowden and the role technology will play in both the hindering and/or facilitating the leaking of security intelligence collection. In other words, from a policy perspective, what role will technology play in facilitating or restraining ‘future Snowdens’ in revealing state secrets?
