In the 12 years since 9/11, as the national security threat matrix has become increasingly complex, technological advances have expanded intelligence gathering capabilities significantly. Recently, public concern about government monitoring of individuals has come to the forefront of the discussion. To address the intersection of security, privacy, and intelligence, the President has proposed several reforms, and is studying others in consultation with Congress. This Symposium will analyze and offer observations on those proposals.
The Federalist Society presented this panel at "The NSA, Security, Privacy, and Intelligence Symposium" on February 24, 2014, at Jones Day LLP in Washington, DC.
