Unlocking the Privacy-Security Debate

Date: March 20, 2017 - 4:00pm to 7:00pm
Location: 111 E. Taylor Street, Phoenix, AZ 85004 - Room 544 - Fifth Floor Conference Center

Terrorism and cybersecurity are two significant national security threats that the global community must deal with in the coming decade. The current approach of mass surveillance and reducing the strength of encryption have questionable and potentially detrimental effects that lead to concerns about the invasion of privacy and undermining freedom and prosperity. Leaders from government, industry, and academia will come together in this open forum to discuss current methods of combating terrorism and cybersecurity threats and the need to establish win-win, positive-sum methods. By addressing these concerns, we can begin the complex and necessary process of simultaneously enhancing security and protecting our privacy.
