Marc Zwillinger, an attorney specializing in information security, talked about the Electronic Communications Privacy Act (ECPA). The act was written in 1986 to provide more privacy for e-mails and other electronic communications. He discussed efforts in Congress to update the statute and the concerns of Congress, federal investigators and privacy advocates. Mr. Zwillinger argued that technology has made the law outdated. He pointed out that under the current law investigators can gain access to any e-mail older than 180 days without a search warrant. He responded to telephone calls and electronic communications.
