Media Alert: Subsentio® Webinar on Legal Liability of Non-Compliance With CALEA and International Surveillance Laws, Wednesday, June 14, 2:30pm ET


WASHINGTON, June 12, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- On Wednesday, June 14, 2017 at 2:30pm ET, Subsentio, the CALEA Compliance Company®, will hold a webinar on the legal risks and financial penalties that can strike communications service providers (CSPs) that fail to meet compliance requirements of the Communications Assistance for Law Enforcement Act (CALEA) – or of the diverse surveillance laws that CSPs are subject to when providing services in other nations.

Host: Joel Margolis, Subsentio General Counsel and Executive Vice President Government Affairs, and former attorney for the US Department of Justice – Drug Enforcement Administration, and Federal Communications Commission.

Enacted in 1994, CALEA is the law used by US law enforcement agencies for court-ordered lawful intercept. CALEA compliance is mandatory for the great majority of CSPs doing business in the US. Webinar topics on relevant legal liabilities for non-compliance will include:

  • Legal action and financial penalties for CSP failure to obey a CALEA court order.
  • Escalation of CSPs’ CALEA compliance infractions to the Federal Bureau of Investigation and U.S. Department of Justice.
  • Financial penalties ranging into the US $millions when a CSP overcharges law enforcement agencies for CALEA compliance support.
  • Penalties for violating Federal Communications Commission rules that protect call data records of innocent CSP subscribers not subject to a court-ordered lawful intercept.
  • Class-action and private lawsuits, including legal action undertaken by one CSP against another, for transgressing the bounds of CALEA and other US surveillance laws.
  • Broad variation of international laws, and liability in a foreign country for conducting surveillance practices considered lawful in the US., but illegal in that nation.
