Richard Salgado’s Written Testimony to House Judiciary Committee Available at House.gov

Richard Salgado’s written testimony to the House Judiciary Committee has turned up on House.gov. (This link is to a PDF file.) “My name is Richard Salgado. As the Director for Law Enforcement and Information Security at Google, I oversee the company’s response to government requests for user information under various authorities from around the world. This includes requests from authorities in the U.S. under the Electronic Communications Privacy Act (ECPA) and pursuant to diplomatic mechanisms such as mutual legal assistance treaties (MLATs) and agreements, and letters rogatory. I am also responsible for working with teams across Google to protect the security of our networks and user data. I have served as a Senior Counsel in the Computer Crime and Intellectual Property Section in the U.S. Department of Justice, and have taught and lectured on these issues at Georgetown University Law Center, George Mason University Law School, and most recently at Stanford Law School.” This is about eight pages, interesting reading if you’re interested in privacy and data requests to US providers from outside the US.
