Panel Discussion: Privacy and Security in the Age of NSA and Snowden

Sign up or log in to save this event to your list and see who's attending!

Snowden’s actions have led to a “reinvigorated” interest in government oversight. Privacy advocates are concerned about both corporate data collection and government spying. What trade-offs are the American people willing to live with? Are trade-offs, however, actually needed? Can our country be both safe and our citizens’ privacy protected? We have assembled a panel of experts who can address all aspects of this crucial issue.
