The Cybersecurity 202: Privacy advocates blast Kavanaugh for government surveillance support

"Kavanaugh could be a “potential vote for retrenchment on privacy and the Fourth Amendment,” said Albert Gidari, director of privacy at the Stanford Center for Internet and Society. As Kavanaugh moves through the confirmation process, he added, “I don't think there will be any surprises, as his unabashed view that national security trumps privacy is pretty clearly articulated in Klayman.”

“In short,” Gidari said, “the privacy community isn't having cocktails over this one.”"
