    Security as a Threat to Liberty? Privacy and Internet Law in the Aftermath of the NSA Revelation

    Registration for this event has closed.

    The Washington Foreign Law Society and Hogan Lovells LLP invite you to join us for a breakfast discussion on privacy, security, and the implications of the recent NSA leaks.

    The Snowden disclosures about alleged NSA operations have raised questions about the privacy of personal data held by Internet and telecom companies. This program will examine the allegations that have prompted national and international attention to the issue of privacy on the Internet. With those allegations as background, the session will then take a dispassionate look at the structure and operation of the Patriot Act and the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act, the laws used by US authorities for national intelligence purposes. To provide context, the national security intelligence laws in the EU and elsewhere also will be explored. Finally, the program will include a discussion of whether legal reforms are needed, or possible.

    Breakfast will be served at this event.



    Members of the Washington Foreign Law Society will receive a $5 discount for this event.

    This event will begin at 8:00 a.m., with the speech beginning promptly at 8:30 a.m. The event, including Q&A, is expected to run until approximately 9:15 a.m.

    Guests should bring photo ID to check in with security.
