FISA 702 at Stake: Congressional Clash Over Surveillance Authority

Episode 303

The clock is ticking fast for reauthorization of FISA Section 702. With several proposed bills on the table and lack of consensus within Congress, the fate of this surveillance tool is at this time unclear. This week, host Elisa is joined by Glenn Gerstell and Adam Hickey to discuss the security value of Section 702, its strengths and weaknesses, and how clashing views behind privacy and data collection are shaping the conversation.

Glenn Gerstell is former General Counsel at the National Security Agency

Adam Hickey is Partner at Mayer Brown, and the former Deputy Assistant Attorney General for National Security
