The Innovation Revolution, the Explosion of Data, and What it Means for National Security and Privacy

Several trends impact the interplay of technology and national security. The rise of China creates an asymmetric threat, as the country exports technology for both commercial and geopolitical advantage. Fragmentation of the information environment provides a forum for mischief. Communications have migrated to encrypted apps such as Signal and WhatsApp, creating a reliance on private-sector data which is challenging for government surveillance. Autonomous systems and human-machine teaming are outpacing legal authority.

With this backdrop, national security experts discuss controversial issues such as government access to communications, protecting the privacy rights of citizens abroad, increasing open-source intelligence collection, and allowing law enforcement back-door entry into app-based communications.

What you’ll learn:

  • What are the privacy issues involved with national security?
  • How does data coming out of the private sector change the way government security leaders think about their jobs?
  • What is the impact on government regulations such as the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA), Privacy Shield and others?
