Airing on Tuesday, June 2, 2015: First up, we'll talk to Zulfikar Ramzan, CTO at RSA Security, about the IRS hack. Plus, Facebook is now letting its members use encryption to scramble emails that the social network might send to a user; anything from changing a password, to notifications of textbook messages. The move is yet another salvo in the battle between tech companies that want more security, and law enforcement agencies, which fear losing tools to catch criminals. We'll also speak with Cindy Cohn, Executive Director of the Electronic Frontier Foundation, about the expiration of some provisions of the USA PATRIOT Act, and what happens next in Congress.
