To Whom It May Concern:
Pursuant to the Freedom of Information Act, I hereby request the following records:
Product brochures, Powerpoint presentations, flyers and other promotional business documents from defense and technology company Verint Systems -- also known as "Verint" or "Verint Cyber Intelligence" or "Verint CIS" -- about products or services relating to offensive cybersecurity, surveillance, electronic warfare, virtual operations, artificial intelligence, and machine learning. The focus of the requests involves product documents that carry terminology/keywords/descriptions such as: Computer Network Operations (CNO), Computer Network Exploitation (CNE), Computer Network Attacks (CNA), and cyber intelligence. Verint is a technology contractor that sells surveillance technologies and internet monitoring capabilities. The firm is headquartered in the United States, but is primarily managed from Israel. Verint is known for producing high-tech products for national security and law enforcement agencies to help conduct surveillance against threats, including terrorism and criminal entities. This FOIA seeks materials produced by the contractor to explain/sell/market their cyber intelligence capabilities/offerings to the U.S. government between the years 2015 and 2020 (or the current date of review). Such material would be likely held/controlled by the appropriate business contracting office within the agency and/or other divisions that make purchase/contracting decisions.
The requested documents will be made available to the general public, and this request is not being made for commercial purposes.
In the event that there are fees, I would be grateful if you would inform me of the total charges in advance of fulfilling my request. I would prefer the request filled electronically, by e-mail attachment if available or CD-ROM if not.
Thank you in advance for your anticipated cooperation in this matter. I look forward to receiving your response to this request within 20 business days, as the statute requires.
