I will be speaking at the Fall seminar sponsored by Research Security Administrators on October 7, 2008 in Fountain Valley California. For those not familiar with RSA, it was founded in 1956, as a nonprofit regional security organization "concerned with all defense, technical, scientific, and social matters which have an impact on the security of the United States."
The Fall seminar is titled "Analyzing, Mitigating, Responding, and Managing Threats and Emergencies." Below is the topic of my presentation, entitled “Legal Considerations: Privacy & Security in the 21st Century”:
The technologies available for combating security threats have increased dramatically. Electronic databases, monitoring of e-mail, surveillance, lie detection, and other tools are potent weapons. But they implicate serious legal restrictions that can compromise security efforts and result in lawsuits or even criminal prosecution. This presentation will explore how best to navigate the legal challenges inherent in security operations in the 21st Century, with a special emphasis on technology and privacy rights.
