Understanding the Global Implications of the N.S.A. Disclosures on the U.S. Technology Industry
Monday, April 7, 2014 – 3:00 to 5:00 PM followed by a reception from 5:00 to 6:00 PM
Microsoft Innovation & Policy Center – 901 K Street NW (11th Floor) Washington, DC
brought to you by the National Security Law Brief, American University Washington College of Law and the Microsoft Innovation & Policy Center.
Please join us for our 2014 Spring Symposium where seasoned practitioners will discuss how U.S. intelligence policies affect American technology companies operating overseas. In the wake of the N.S.A. disclosures, U.S. technology companies conducting business abroad face many threats to their ability to retain customers, maintain their data integrity, and conduct basic day-to-day business operations overseas. Even the most conservative estimates of financial losses reach into the billions of dollars over the coming decade. These companies thus face a confusing and rapidly-changing landscape that implicates the U.S. economy, technological innovations, and national security capabilities. The National Security Law Brief’s spring symposium will look at the current state of play for U.S. technology companies doing business abroad, focusing specifically on how practitioners view the current business environment, and examining ways for companies to successfully move forward in a more hostile international context.
The event will be moderated by Carrie Cordero of the Georgetown University Law Center and speakers will include:
Elizabeth Banker, ZwillGen
David Fagan, Covington & Burling LLP
Joseph Moreno, Cadwalader, Wickersham & Taft, LLP
Gerard Stegmaier, Wilson Sonsini Goodrich & Rosati
