JEFFERSON CITY - Attorney General Chris Koster has announced plans to host an electronic communications security and privacy summit in October.

In a press release, Koster notes recent controversies regarding phone mail hacking in Great Britain have caused him to request an analysis of current Missouri law. Initial findings indicate a need to update several current laws and think about new action in areas where technology has outpaced state law.

Summit participants will hear testimony from law enforcement, advocacy groups and c itizens in order to review current laws on issues including phone hacking, email privacy, identity theft and unauthorized GPS tracking.

Time and place of the summit have not yet been determined.
