FBI General Counsel James Baker and Newseum President and CEO Jeffrey Herbst will discuss challenges to our national security. What threats do we face from terrorist groups overseas and from homegrown violent extremists? Does the FBI have the tools and the resources needed to confront emerging cyber issues? How does encryption impact the work of law enforcement? Can we strike the right balance between privacy, public safety and security? Baker and Herbst will talk about how today’s FBI works to protect the public while safeguarding civil liberties, civil rights, and the rule of law.
