Software has been eating the world for a long time—and law and government are next. Businesses are increasingly transcending physical boundaries into new, unregulated virtual domains, forcing companies, developers and regulators to take a hard look at how data is collected, stored, and used. And new laws around the world are beginning to force the technology industry to rethink how it approaches the law. This talk will explain how and why the worlds of law and technology are colliding, and what this means for data-driven companies, the technology industry, and governments and citizens around the world.

BIO: Andrew is Chief Privacy Officer & Legal Engineer at Immuta, the data management platform for the world’s most secure organizations. He is also a visiting fellow at Yale Law School’s Information Society Project.

Previously, Andrew served as Special Advisor for Policy to the head of the FBI Cyber Division, where he served as lead author on the FBI’s after action report for the 2014 attack on Sony.

A former reporter, Andrew has published articles on technology, history, and law in The Financial Times, The Los Angeles Times, Slate, The Atlantic, and The Yale Journal of International Affairs. His book, American Hysteria: The Untold Story of Mass Political Extremism in the United States (Lyons Press, 2015), was called “a must read book dealing with a topic few want to tackle” by Nobel laureate Archbishop Desmond Tutu.

Andrew holds a J.D. from Yale Law School and a B.A. from McGill University. He is a term-member of the Council on Foreign Relations, a member of the Washington, D.C. and Virginia State Bars, and a Global Information Assurance Certified (GIAC) cyber incident response handler.
