On January 13, 2016, the National Cybersecurity Institute (NCI) hosted a webinar on “Privacy, Encryption, and National Security”.
Cyber-enabled communications present a number of policy challenges. As technology spreads, sophisticated encryption technologies have become available not only to governments, but to individuals as well. This webinar looked at several of the issues surrounding surveillance, encryption, social media and the implications for national security in an age of global terrorism
The webinar was presented by Dr. Kevin Newmeyer. Currently the Senior Operations Director for the CREATE™ project of the DoD High Performance Computing Modernization Program, Dr. Newmeyer has successfully held a variety of positions in the military, academia, international civil service, and the private sector. His research focuses on international policy issues in cybersecurity.
Along with his Ph.D. in Public Policy from Walden University, Dr. Newmeyer’s educational career is highlighted by his selection as an Olmsted Scholar which enabled him to earn his MA in International Relations from the Instituto Universitario Ortega y Gasset in Madrid, Spain. He holds additional degrees from Escuela Diplomática of Spain (Diplomado de Estudios Internacionales), George Mason University (MBA), and the US Naval Academy (BS).
