Jonathan Mayer - Cybersecurity Fellow, CISAC

About the Topic: What do the National Security Agency’s bulk
surveillance programs reveal about Americans?  This talk presents
ongoing studies of Internet and telephone metadata.  Preliminary
results suggest that technical restrictions are far less effective
than many observers have assumed.

Jonathan Mayer is a Ph.D student in Computer Science and a J.D.
student in Law at Stanford University. He joined CISAC as a
predoctoral cybersecurity fellow in 2012, and continued as a
cybersecurity fellow at CISAC for 2013-2014.

His research aims to advance difficult problems in technology policy.
His recent work has focused on how to protect consumer privacy while
