At the ABA TECHSHOW, Cindy Cohn gave a keynote speech discussing the NSA, the fourth amendment, the Apple vs. FBI case, and the Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF). Afterwards, she stopped by to discuss these very relevant topics with Legal Talk Network hosts Bob Ambrogi and Dennis Kennedy. They talk about how the NSA is gathering and filtering our online communications, why Cohn believes this mass data diversion doesn’t meet the Constitution’s definition of a warrant, and why average (non-terrorist) citizens should care. The keynote speaker then touches on the currently pending Apple vs. FBI case and the long-term security risks of being required to have backdoors in our devices. They end the interview with a quick discussion about how lawyers can provide assistance, if they are interested.

Cindy Cohn is the executive director for the Electronic Frontier Foundation, a nonprofit working across the board to bring American’s constitutional and legal rights into the digital age. The National Law Journal named Ms. Cohn one of 100 most influential lawyers in America in 2003, noting, “[I]f Big Brother is watching, he better look out for Cindy Cohn.”
