Intelligence Operations in a Digital Age
A panel of former intelligence officials will address the impact of cyber and related national security threats and how technological advances challenge intelligence policy, operational, and legal officials and affect operations.
Panelists will discuss practical, policy, and legal factors that can influence the planning and conduct of intelligence operations, including privacy and property interests that can be affected by operations, the obstacles to operating clandestinely in an increasingly transparent world, and the operational and personal liability risks that confront intelligence officers and others seeking clarity in what applicable laws and policies allow.

“The Council on Intelligence Issues is very pleased to be able to present this distinguished panel of former senior officials. Our panelists’ extensive public and private sector experience will enable them to provide unique insights into practical and operational challenges in planning and conducting secret intelligence activities,” said George Jameson, co-founder and president of the Council on Intelligence Issues.
“CII strives to educate the public about the risk of personal and even legal jeopardy facing intelligence officers who must operate clandestinely. This event is for anyone interested in a real world look at those risks and the national security challenges brought by technological advances and the increasing openness they often bring,” Jameson added. “Panelists also will share their perspectives on the implications of foreign cyber threats against the private sector and the challenges in building public-private collaboration to address them effectively.”
