Join us for a discussion about technology and bulk intelligence collection with Elizabeth Rindskopf Parker, former General Counsel of CIA and NSA, and member of the CLS Board of Advisors, and Peter Weinberger, senior technologist at Google and creator of the AWK programming language. Peter and Elizabeth are two of a dozen senior national security, technology, and legal professionals who were tasked by the President with determining whether there are technological alternatives to the bulk collection of signals intelligence as part of the signals intelligence reforms initiated in the last two years. Their study, conducted under the auspices of the National Academy of Sciences, brought legal and technological perspectives to bear to solve a national security challenge -- a model that will undoubtedly become the norm in the future.
The seminar on security and information technology addresses a variety of perspectives on security in a digital age, including security of information and software, computer networks, cyber-physical systems and infrastructure and will include discussions about national as well as international cybersecurity law and policy. The seminar is a collaboration of the Information Law Institute, the Center on Law and Security at NYU School of Law, the Center for Interdisciplinary Studies in Security and Privacy at NYU Polytechnic School of Engineering, and Steinhardt’s Department of Media, Culture and Communication.
