The U.S. Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court has named Annie Antón its newest technologist advisor, the Georgia Tech News Center reports. The FISC can obtain assistance from an amicus curiae who has knowledge on privacy and civil liberties topics. Of the three technologists hired by the FISC, Antón is the only academic. “I am honored to be asked to assist with foreign intelligence cases that involve national security, cybersecurity and privacy,” said Antón, who currently serves as a professor for Georgia Tech's School of Interactive Computing. “Technologists play a vital role in helping the courts understand how complex systems operate in practice, in order to assure that systems comply with law.”
