What US surveillance means to our rights, our businesses, and our allies

RSVP Form for Privacy's Broken Shield

We will discuss the controversial surveillance law known as Section 702, how such surveillance is affecting businesses with users in the European Union, and the recent decision striking down the data transfer agreement known as Privacy Shield. As you may know, the Court of Justice of the European Union (CJEU) struck down Privacy Shield after concluding US intelligence laws do not adequately protect prviacy. Section 702, meanwhile, is slated to sunset in 2023. A recent CRS report about the above is available here, and more details are below. This panel is hosted by the Fourth Amendment Advisory Committee and Restore the Fourth.
