Episode 225: Interview with General Michael Hayden
In our 225th episode of The Cyberlaw Podcast, Stewart Baker interviews General Michael Hayden (@GenMhayden) regarding his new book The Assault on Intelligence: American National Security in an Age of Lies. Stewart and General Hayden are joined by Paul Rosenzweig(@RosenzweigP), David Kris (@DavidKris), Nate Jones (@n8jones81), and Nick Weaver (@ncweaver) to discuss: ZTE takes compliance steps, gets preliminary life support order from Commerce Department; and China Mobile’s application to provide telecom service to Americans is also going to bite the dust – after only seven years of dithering; remarkably, European Parliament has second thoughts about self-destructive copyright maximalism – maybe Wikipedia Italy’s blocking campaign had some effect? Is Europe leaving the US in the dust when it comes to rifling through immigrants' digital data? And: Israel claims that social media monitoring has cut down on lone-wolf attacks – the Palestinians aren’t happy; DNC tries to improve security, gets 80% of its staff not to click on bad links – what’s sad is that this really is pretty good by the standards of most institutions; Feds have developed a strategy to bust Dark Web money launderers; NSA’s mass data destruction.

Episode 224 with Duncan Hollis: Do We Need an International “Potluck” Cyber Coalition?
In our 224th episode of The Cyberlaw Podcast, Stewart Baker interviews Duncan Hollis regarding his and Matthew Waxman’s paper, “Promoting International Cybersecurity Cooperation: Lessons from the Proliferation Security Initiative (PSI).” Stewart and Duncan are joined by Maury Shenk, Christopher Conte, Jamil Jaffer (@jamil_n_jaffer), and Laura Hillsman to discuss: California’s new privacy law; SEC charges a second Equifax manager with insider training; White House draws a line in the sand over ZTE in statement of administration policy – but not veto threat, and the president decides only to beat up Chinese investments once; serious problems in the USA Freedom Act record system; facing reality, Reality pleads; kind of a sad showing for Cybersecurity Information Sharing Act’s information-sharing provisions; The Intercept continues to pioneer relevance-free journalism; trust in social media is collapsing, especially among Republicans, who (remarkably) also think tech companies need more regulation.
