13 Bell-Ringer 9/11/08 The attack by al qaeda terrorists on the cities of washington d.c. and new york led to new legislation named, the patriot act.

14 September 11 & the Patriot Act
Read Legislation Together Listen and take notes on right side. On the left – What do you remember about September 11, 2001? Bottom – Summary: How do historic events transform our laws and our society?

15 Summary of the Patriot Act

16 Summary of the Patriot Act
Section 202: Authority to intercept wire, oral or electronic communications relating to computer fraud and abuse offenses. Bottom Line: Expands ability for service providers to get government help with hacking, denial of service attacks, and related Computer Fraud and Abuse Act violations.

17 Bottom Line: Will result in increased roving tap activity.
Section 206: Roving surveillance authority under the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act of 1978. Bottom Line: Will result in increased roving tap activity. Expands FISA court orders to allow "roving" surveillance in a manner similar to ECPA wiretaps. (The federal wiretap statute, but not FISA, was amended 15 years ago to allow "roving taps.") A roving wiretap enables government investigators to intercept all of a suspect's wire or electronic communications relating to the conduct under investigation, regardless of the suspect's location when communicating. The quintessential situation requiring a roving wiretap in the past has been when a suspect goes from phone booth to phone booth numerous times in an effort to prevent his calls from being wiretapped. Since September 11, 2001, the Administration has cited surveillance challenges posed by "disposable" cell phone situations?where a suspect buys a cell phone on day one and a week later buys another cell phone with another number and moves from cell phone to cell phone seeking to avoid interception. But "roving tap" authority is not limited to voice communications; it could equally be used to intercept the communications of a suspect who changes Internet accounts every day, or several times a day.

18 Section 351 et. seq. Bank Secrecy Act amendments and related improvements.
Bottom Line: Expansion of Bank Secrecy Act in connection with bank records. These sections generally amend the law in ways that will permit increased government access to information from banks that relates to terrorism. At the same time, institutions and their directors, officers, employees, and agents are protected from liability for such reporting of suspicious banking activities.
