Criminal Investigations and the Future of Data Privacy in the Wake of Edward Snowden and the NSA Surveillance Program

Wednesday, September 18, 2013 12:30 PM to 1:30 PM
Boston Bar Association - 16 Beacon Street, Boston, MA


Edward Snowden’s revelations concerning the NSA's surveillance program rocked the world and the United States' relationships within the international community.  Here at home, corporations and individuals have begun to question with greater frequency what constitutes data "privacy" in this era of social media.

Join Assistant United States Attorney Amy Burkart, and The Ashcroft Group's Data Privacy Counsel, Ellen Giblin, for an informative and lively discussion about the future of criminal investigations and data privacy in the wake of recent global events.

We'll address issues such as: What types of data are "private"?  What data is the government entitled to subpoena?  When is a search warrant needed?  What can companies do to protect their customers' privacy information?  What can individuals do to protect themselves?  What effects will Snowden's revelations have on law enforcement's ability to do its job?
