The Privacy and Civil Liberties Oversight Board hosted a public forum to discuss the USA Freedom Act, a modified extension of the Patriot Act, which was due to expire at the end of 2019 if not reauthorized by Congress. Privacy and data experts focused their remarks on the part of the legislation know as "Section 215", which allows the National Security Agency (NSA) to collect phone records. Questions around whether a telephone records program violated privacy and civil liberties were also discussed as well as how technology has changed since the law was enacted back in 2015. close
