Surveillance Policy: A Pragmatic Agenda for 2017 and Beyond

By Adam Klein

On December 12, CNAS will release a comprehensive report on the future of surveillance policy, including 61 recommendations for the next administration and Congress.  The report’s pragmatic approach enhances privacy, protects the competitiveness of the U.S. technology industry, and addresses the international consequences of surveillance programs, without sacrificing capabilities needed for foreign intelligence, counterterrorism, or law enforcement.

Two of the report’s co-authors, Michèle Flournoy, Chief Executive Officer of CNAS, and Adam Klein, Senior Fellow at CNAS, will provide a short briefing on CNAS’s work on surveillance policy and on the report’s main findings.
 
This presentation will be followed by a moderated panel on key issues in surveillance policy facing the incoming administration and Congress.
