On March 26, 2019, MNSLA and OCPD hosted a "Privacy Today: United States and International Legal Perspectives" panel. Panelists included: Michael Aktipis, attorney in the Office of the Legal Advisor at the U.S. Department of State in Washington DC; Marguerite C. Walter, attorney in the Office of the Legal Advisor at the U.S. Department of State in Washington DC; and COL Paul Golden, U.S. Army War College Fellow assigned to the Office of General Counsel at the Office of the Director of National Intelligence in Washington, DC. Colonel (Retired) Richard Pregent, who served as a Judge Advocate for nearly thirty years, moderated the event.
The panelists spoke about privacy and how it effects us everyday- including cyber security such as the impact of companies like Facebook collecting personal data of their users, including the international implications as well. The audience asked various questions following the panelists' presentations.
Following the panel, students were invited to a reception with alumni in the Keelty Atrium for a chance to network and engage in conversations.
