Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Limited Capacity seats available

The NSA’s surveillance program brought to light by the controversial revelations of Edward Snowden has raised myriad debates about whether and how to reform the different programs within the NSA surveillance system. Almost everyone is calling for some type of reform. Presidential advisory panels have offered reform suggestions, former FISA panel judges have weighed in with ideas, Members of Congress have introduced bills, and every civil libertarian in the country has ideas on how to reform the system. On January 17 President Obama addressed the nation and offered his own ideas how to implement program changes. Our panel will explore many of the reform ideas volleyed thus far and assess their efficacy.
