The Cyber Threat to our National Security and Privacy

Wednesday, April 19th, 2017 @ 4-5:15pm

Jerome Greene Hall, Room 103

Congressman Adam Schiff represents California's 28th District.  In his 9th term, Schiff currently serves as the Ranking Member of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence.  Because of his role as the Ranking Member of the House Intelligence Committee, Schiff is central to many of the cyber debates raging in our nation’s capital. From the reauthorization and reform of the telephone metadata program in the wake of Snowden’s illegal leaks, to passing a bipartisan cyber-information sharing bill that enhanced privacy protections while enabling voluntary information sharing of cyber threats between and among the private and public sectors. In the coming months, the House Intelligence Committee will help lead the debate on whether to reauthorize Section 702 of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act, a key authority that expires at the end of 2017.

Co-sponsored by Professors:  Michael Doyle Center on Global Governance and Matthew Waxman Roger Hertog Program on Law and National Security.
