National Insecurity Agency: How the NSA's Surveillance Programs Undermine Internet Security

New America Foundation
Monday July 07, 2014
4:00 p.m. - 6:00 p.m.

Join the New America Foundation for a wide-ranging afternoon panel discussion between technologists, policy experts and Internet industry representatives, to discuss how the NSA's actions threaten Internet security and the Internet economy that relies on it, and how we can address that threat on both a personal and a policy level. With introductory comments by Representatives Lofgren and Grayson and appearances by experts such as Internet security luminary Bruce Schneier and Google's top privacy lawyer in DC, we'll dig deep into the policy and the technology of the NSA programs that have been most overlooked. We'll also debut the new research paper from New America's Open Technology Institute, "Surveillance Costs: How NSA Spying Undermines the Economy, Cybersecurity, and Internet Freedom".
