National Security and Privacy in a Digitized World

Episode 241

What makes the world go round? It is increasingly obvious that today the answer is "data" – specifically, data about individuals that companies collect, transmit, and store. Understandably, governments seek access to that data to protect national security and public safety, but such access raises serious privacy concerns, both at home and abroad. This week's episode features an expert panel from our CLE conference this past February. The panel discusses the various angles of data privacy, as well as the national security benefits and risks of international data flows.
