The Innovation & Technology Council identifies and engages with business clusters that have economic growth potential — including signature, emerging and innovative industry groups. The Council aims to promote policies that will strengthen these industries, elevate their global reach, drive job creation and regional economic prosperity.
Join us as we welcome Congressman Ted Lieu who will discuss his work in Washington D.C. to address cybersecurity and internet privacy.
A member of the Information Technology subcommittee of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform, Lieu has most recently been rallying against FBI consideration to have tech companies create a "backdoor" to their products and services that would allow law enforcement to circumvent encryption technology but also leave items vulnerable to exploitation by others. Lieu also led discussions against the National Security Agency's bulk collection of metadata during the vote for extending the Patriot Act.
Check out an article from the Washington Post to learn more about Lieu's thoughts on encryption technology.
