dc.descriptionTimothy H. Edgar defended privacy as an ACLU lawyer before going inside America’s growing surveillance state as an intelligence official in both the Bush and Obama administrations – a story he tells in Beyond Snowden: Privacy, Mass Surveillance, and the Struggle to Reform the NSA. In 2013, Edgar left government to become a Senior Fellow at Brown University’s Watson Institute and helped put together Brown’s Executive Master in Cybersecurity. Edgar also serves on the advisory board of Virtru, an encryption software company. He is a contributing editor to Lawfare and his work has also appeared in the Wall Street Journal, the Guardian, Foreign Affairs, and Wired. Edgar is a graduate of Harvard Law School and Dartmouth College.en_US

dc.description.abstractSnowden’s leaks of top secret documents prompted companies and individuals to take long overdue steps to make their communications and data more secure. The episode also led to reforms that made government surveillance more transparent, more accountable, more protective of privacy—and, contrary to conventional wisdom, actually strengthened the NSA in significant ways by making it more effective. While the reforms implemented by Congress and the Obama administration were a good first step, much more needs to be done to prevent abuse.en_US
