Megan Brown Co-Authors National Security Institute’s New Law and Policy Paper on ‘Privacy Regulation and Unintended Consequences for Security’

August 14, 2019

Megan L. Brown, partner in Wiley Rein’s National SecurityPrivacy, Cyber & Data Governance, and Telecom, Media & Technology practices, co-authored a new law and policy paper published today by the National Security Institute (NSI) at George Mason University’s Antonin Scalia Law School. The paper is co-authored with NSI Visiting Fellow James B. Burchfield.

The paper addresses:

  • The federal urgency to act in response to public concern and the rapid global and domestic expansion of comprehensive privacy regulation.

  • Implications privacy regulation can have for data protection and beneficial security activities.

  • The argument that artificial intelligence (AI), biometrics, and certain data categories are all critical to security innovations and activities and must be protected in privacy regulation.

  • Actionable recommendations to ensure privacy regulation appropriately balances individual rights with security.

The paper is available here. The NSI press release can be found here.
