ICYMI: REP. LIEU LISTED ON THE HILL’S “16 PEOPLE TO WATCH IN TECH”

Online at The Hill, Mr. Lieu is named one of sixteen people to watch in tech 


 

“Rep. Ted Lieu, 47, is one of only four House members with computer science degrees. The California Democrat is also a colonel in the Air Force reserves and a prominent voice on technology and cybersecurity.”

“Lieu has been most noted as an opponent of weakening encryption but has also weighed in on mobile device security and how medical institutions should respond to ransomware.”

“As a kid, I remember my first computer was an Apple II, and it was the coolest thing in the universe,” Lieu told The Hill. “The folks who went through technology when they were young and still use it now have a different view of tech policy than those who are just beginning to see its advantages and disadvantages.”
