The National Security Analysis Center (NSAC) is an element of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI). Headquartered in Crystal City, Virginia, just outside of Washington D.C., the NSAC maintains a hodgepodge of data sets packed with more than 1.5 billion government and private-sector records about citizens and foreigners. The NSAC was created in 2008, and has grown into a 400-person, $150 million-a-year multi-agency organization employing almost 300 analysts, the majority of whom are corporate contractors.
