[PAST EVENT] Understanding Data Privacy
Access & Features
The United States Constitution has no set provision on individual privacy. Often in the United States, privacy is not talked about as a positive right. However, with the arrival of Big Tech in Washington, individuals have started to experience the effects of Big Tech's intrusion. Often the refrain is, if a product is "free" like Facebook, you the consumer are the product being sold.
Data privacy and digital rights are still not clearly understood as a positive right in policy to fight for in the U.S. This comes at a particularly important juncture in policy, with the rise in popularity of privacy enhancing technology like end-to-end encryption messaging applications (such as Telegram and Signal). Elena will discuss how policymakers should write digital privacy rights, talk about her work on Zcash (the blockchain-based privacy token), and how individuals can take control of their digital right to privacy.
