Senior International Policy Analyst
RAND Corporation

Hosted by Montour High School

Following September 11, 2001, the Patriot Act broadened the U.S. government’s surveillance abilities. These were then brought into the spotlight following leaks of government data by individuals like Edward Snowden. Recently, government surveillance activities on the general public have been a focal point in the debate about individual privacy and counterterrorism measures. How should the government and citizens negotiate the desire for privacy with the need for national security?

cyber_speakerSina Marie Beaghley is a senior international policy analyst at RAND corporation, where she focuses her research on intelligence, cyber, and counterterrorism policy issues. She most recently served as Director for Intelligence and Information Security at the National Security Council where she coordinated the U.S. government review of intelligence capabilities and prioritization in response to widespread unauthorized disclosures. In that capacity, she provided recommendations to the President and National Security Advisor on foreign relations and intelligence posture and policy.

During this seminar and video conference, Ms. Beaghley will discuss challenges regarding national security within the spheres of intelligence, privacy, and security policy. Following her remarks, students will have the opportunity to ask questions during a moderated discussion.
