In light of the Paris attacks and the Marathon Bombing trials, he will reveal why our agencies are consistently failing us despite the vast amounts of technology, contractors and data at their disposal. Bill will explore the increased risk to our privacy presented by the new intelligence facilities planned for Fort Meade, dwarfing Bluffdale, and home to a 7000+ strong workforce.
