New Executive Order: Safeguarding Americans' Sensitive Data with Alex Joel

Episode 315

On February 28th, President Biden signed Executive Order 14117 on "Preventing Access to Americans’ Bulk Sensitive Personal Data and United States Government-Related Data by Countries of Concern." This week, host Elisa is joined by friend-of-the-cast Alex Joel to breakdown the key actions within this EO, what types of data the DOJ may restrict, what "countries of concern" encompasses, and any potential blind spots this EO could be missing. 

Alex Joel is a Scholar-in-Residence and Adjunct Professor at the Washington College of Law at American University.
