SALT LAKE CITY (AP) - Former intelligence contractor Edward Snowden is scheduled to speak by video to an audience in Park City.

Snowden is known for leaking classified documents to expose government surveillance by the National Security Agency. He will be participating in a Dec. 5 discussion on cybersecurity at the Eccles Center.

Snowden will speak in real time in a closed circuit conversation from his apartment in Russia, where he has been given asylum.

Park City Institute director Teri Orr will not reveal how much Snowden will be paid but says his appearance is “not the priciest” of the Institute’s events.

Tickets for the Snowden event will go on sale to Institute members this week. The public can buy tickets beginning October 1.
