Steve Trush is currently a Research Fellow at UC Berkeley’s Center for Long-Term Cybersecurity (CLTC) and Deputy Director of CLTC’s Citizen Clinic where he researches and defends against cybersecurity threats to politically vulnerable organizations and communities. As a veteran of the United States’ military and federal agencies supporting international security initiatives, he learned how mass surveillance systems are abused and digital innovations can be exploited by both governmental and private organizations.

 

A recent graduate of the Masters of Information Management and Systems program at the UC Berkeley School of Information, Trush recently held research fellowships through the United States Agency for International Development (USAID), where he researched the risks of data collection networks in rural areas of India and Myanmar, and the Center for Technology, Society, & Policy, where he supported Oakland’s Privacy Advisory Commission through technical evaluations of the CIty’s information systems to identify privacy risks and potential violations of Oakland’s Sanctuary City policies.
