FP Virtual Dialogue: Tech Regulations – A National Security Threat?

The first in a series of dialogues on U.S. tech regulation and geostrategic competition

As Congress considers a wide-range of proposals to regulate American technology companies, the implications of these bills for national security, American competitiveness, data privacy, and broader geopolitical risk have yet to be fully considered and addressed in the legislative debate. 

What unintended national security consequences could coincide with sweeping measures targeting the tech industry? What steps should Congress consider to mitigate those risks amid increased global security threats?

This Virtual Dialogue is part of Foreign Policy‘s two-part series, produced with support from the Computer & Communications Industry Association (CCIA), engaging experts working at the intersection of technology, policy, and geopolitics to discuss the potential implications of proposals in front of Congress. This series will be informed by research from FP Analytics, which elevates the prospective impacts of pending legislation focused on the tech sector.

Learn more about Part 2 of this initiative, which will focus on economic competitiveness, and join the broader conversation online using #USTechRegulation.
