The Cyberlaw Podcast

Stewart Baker, Maury Shenk, and Jason Weinstein discuss this week in NSA: The FBI and ACLU tangle over FOIA; Larry Klayman loses an appeal over Section 215 metadata collection; according to a Bloomberg article the NSA exploited the Heartbleed security flaw for years - the NSA conclusively denied the story immediately; this week in FTC: the District Court ruling in the Wyndham case was largely unsurprising; Whatsapp and Facebook are being locked into their current privacy policies; the commission fairly charges with deceptive practices and orders them to delete data; the European Court of Justice makes news, striking down parts of the data retention directive that have long distinguished Europe as a far less privacy-protective jurisdiction than the United States; continuing the tutorial in class action tactics, the Target litigation is consolidated in Minnesota; the Justice Department and the FTC issue antitrust guidance designed to ease the fears of companies that sharing cybersecurity information will create antitrust liability; and international cyberdiplomacy is slowly recovering from the Snowden leaks. The US makes a creative response to Iran's DOS attacks on banks, and it tries candor on China. In our second half, we have an interview with Dan Sutherland, Associate General Counsel, National Protection and Programs Directorate at the US Department of Homeland Security.
