Joel Brenner, former inspector general and senior counsel at the National Security Agency (NSA), has joined the MIT Center for International Studies (CIS) as a 2014-2015 Robert E. Wilhelm Fellow.
Brenner specializes in cyber- and physical security, data protection and privacy, intelligence law, the administration of classified information and facilities, and the regulation of sensitive cross-border transactions. He is the author of “America the Vulnerable: Inside the New Threat Matrix of Digital Espionage, Crime, and Warfare,” available in paperback as “Glass Houses: Privacy, Secrecy, and Cyber Insecurity in a Transparent World.”
While at MIT, Brenner will be working on intelligence and security issues related to foreign affairs. He is particularly interested in intelligence collection, privacy, and secrecy as emerging issues in international relations and in the potential for curbing state-sponsored theft of intellectual property.
