Cyber Security Under Trump: Stopping the Hacks & Surveillance Reform: What’s Next for Government Powers?
The incoming Trump Administration and the 115th Congress must grapple with two of the thorniest of Internet policy issues: Cybersecurity and Surveillance. We’re pleased to announced that we’ve assembled two expert panels on those respective topics at State of the Net on Monday. There is still time to register.
Leading the conversations on Cyber Security and on Government Surveillance will be:
ABOUT OUR PANELS
CYBERSECURITY UNDER TRUMP: STOPPING THE HACKS
From the recently announced Yahoo data breaches, the DDoS botnet attack on Dyn, the devastating Sony Picture hack in 2014 and the seemingly daily revelations of confidential Clinton Campaign staff emails, the danger and influence posed by cyber attacks has never been more disconcerting. As President Trump takes office how will his Administration, together with a Republican-controlled Congress, address the seemingly rampant hacking and intrusions that happen with unsettling regularity?
SURVEILLANCE REFORM: WHAT’S NEXT FOR GOVERNMENT POWERS?
We will look into how the new Trump Administration will work with Congress to address America‚Äôs government surveillance apparatus and its impact on security, privacy and commerce nationally and internationally. Did the Obama Administration do too much or too little in this area? How will Congress and President Trump‚Äôs Justice Department deal with the renewal or retirement of key provisions of surveillance section 702? What will happen to ECPA including cross-border data warrants for law enforcement? Should the new Congress explore establishing more comprehensive surveillance and law enforcement access framework in the years to come?
We invite you join our panels of experts at the 13th Annual State of the Net Internet Policy Conference on January 23, 2017 at our panels for a closer look at these crucial issues.
