The Brennan Center for Justice and the John Brademas Center for the Study of Congress are hosting a panel discussion, “Privacy After Petraeus” on Feb. 25 in Washington, D.C. RSVP required. Here’s more:
The scandal surrounding David Petraeus’ resignation as Director of the CIA played out against a backdrop of increasing questions about privacy and electronic surveillance in a digital era. In 2010, a federal appeals court ruled for the first time that law enforcement agents need warrants in order to read stored private emails. While companies like Google and Twitter increasingly report on the scope of government requests for their customers’ communications and play an active role in resisting those requests, on the Hill, Congress may be poised to revisit the standard for electronic privacy for the first time since the Atari age. Join us for a conversation about how new technologies have outpaced statutory traditional privacy safeguards and the possibilities for reform.
Date: Monday, February 25, 2013 at noon ET
Location: Abramson Family Auditorium, 1307 L St. NW; Washington, DC 20005
