On Wednesday, October 8, 2014, at 7:30 p.m., Stanford kicked off the new speaker series, The Security Conundrum, with General Michael Hayden’s talk entitled “Inside the NSA.”  Hayden was the first principal deputy director of national intelligence (2005 – 2006) and director of the National Security Agency (1999 – 2005). He is a retired US Air Force four-star general and now a principal of the Chertoff Group.

The Security Conundrum will feature other security experts during the course of the year, including Pulitzer Prize–winning journalist Barton Gellman on November 17, former presiding judge of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court Reggie Walton on April 10, and US senator Dianne Feinstein.  The series is cosponsored by Stanford's Freeman Spogli Institute for International Studies, the Center for International Security and Cooperation, the Hoover Institution, Stanford Continuing Studies, Stanford in Government, and Stanford Law School.

For more information, see the Stanford News story covering the launch.
