Testimony of Zoe Baird to Senate Subcommittee on Terrorism and Homeland Security
Today, we are still vulnerable to attack because—as on 9/11—we are still not able to connect the dots. At the same time, our civil liberties are at risk because we don’t have the government-wide policies in place to protect them as more powerful tools for intelligence collection and sharing information emerge. This testimony offers an overview of the Markle Task Force on National Security in the Information Age's four core recommendations to support enhancing security and privacy protections to match the increased power of shared information. These recommendations come from the Markle Task Force's 2009 report, "Nation at Risk."
