Security Congress Abstract
Advances in the sciences, especially coming from Silicon Valley, continually yield new, novel and high technology and proprietary information, most of which have significant legal ramifications. But laws are slow to change, and rarely keep pace with such rapidly evolving technology. Examples include Frye vs. U.S. (polygraph machine), Katz vs. U.S. (recording devices), Kyllo vs. U.S. (thermal imaging devices), U.S. vs. Jones (2015; GPS tracking devices), U.S. vs. Wurie and Riley vs. California (2014; cell phone searches), U.S. vs. Carpenter (cell phone records), the CLOUD Act, etc. This session reviews select federal appellate and landmark SCOTUS cases, and the legal and practical ramifications that affect every one of us on a daily basis.
