briefing statement privacy implications of open data
You have been asked to provide a briefing for your state legislature’s Joint Committee on Cybersecurity and Information Technology as part of their “Cyber Scholars Day.” The members of this committee are elected representatives of your state’s government. Since this is a formal setting, your briefing statement must be written and then delivered word-for-word from the prepared statement. (Think “speech” and you’ll be on the right path.) Since you are a “scholar” it would be more appropriate for you to stick to the facts and, where opinion is needed, paraphrase from or quote authorities in the field. Inclusion of your own personal opinion is permitted but should be limited.
