Recommendations to the Trump Administration Regarding Information Technology and Cyber Law


The Information Technology and Cyber Law Committee sent a transition memo to the Trump Administration which provided recommendations on cybersecurity, including: investing in cybersecurity as part of physical infrastructure; minimizing barriers to broadband service and access; enacting privacy-related laws (consistent with First Amendment requirements) to promote uniformity and compatibility with data protection laws around the world; updating the Electronic Communications Privacy Act to provide greater search and seizure protections to private electronic communications while maintaining the government’s ability to obtain such communications with proper judicial review; and working with Congress to develop sound legislation on the issue of compelled assistance to law enforcement.
