CSWG Speaker Series - Current Issues in the Debates over Encryption and Government Hacking

The rise of ubiquitous encryption helps protect privacy, economic, and national security interests. At the same time, encryption presents a challenge to the investigatory capabilities of law enforcement agencies in the U.S. and abroad. Relatedly, U.S. law enforcement undertakes "lawful hacking" operations to investigate criminal suspects. These measures are controversial, in part because of their potential for extraterritorial impact on machines outside American law enforcement's jurisdiction. Government hacking and efforts to regulate encryption both raise significant security issues in addition to legal and policy concerns. This talk will discuss the state of the debate over these topics in the U.S. and Europe. Event Name: Cyber Security Student Working Group. Organization: STUDENT SERVICES- MONTEREY. Categories: Open to the Public, Monterey Main Calendar. Contact: Joe Shepard. Thursday, April 27, 2017, 12:00 PM – 1:50 PM. Morse B104.

Hope for Democracy: A Discussion with Sam Farr, Adrienne Harris, Zach Friend & Spencer Critchley

After a presidential election like no other, democracy faces challenges like never before. Government institutions, the free press, the judiciary, the integrity of the election itself — all face doubt and even attack, from both foreign and domestic sources. These are the very foundations of self-rule, and those foundations have been shaken. Increasingly, Americans, among others, are losing hope for democracy — with unprecedented numbers even questioning whether we need it. What’s the way forward? This discussion, presented free of charge, will be an opportunity to hear the unique perspectives of leaders with national and local experience in government, politics, the law, and media — and to ask your own questions. Admission is free, but please register to confirm a seat: http://bit.ly/hope-for-democracy Former Congressman Sam Farr represented the Central Coast in the House of Representatives for 24 years, following service in the California Assembly, on the Monterey County Board of Supe… Categories: Open to the Public, Monterey Main Calendar.
