From Camp_2015_Wiki

Description Our laws, technologies and societies are not ready for the future that is being built. Technology is becoming further embedded into the fabric of society at a time when our devices, networks and services are collecting and generating vast quantities of data on us. The implications for privacy are enormous, particularly when other actors can gain access to this data and exploit it. The legal and technological protections of yesterday are ill prepared for the data fuelled future. Unfortunately civil society is also unprepared.

This new area of focus for Privacy International aims to arrest the continued exploitation of our data. Our objective is to build the foundations for legal protections and identify the technical measures to strictly control the new forms of intelligence generation, gathering, and analysis so that individuals are empowered to prevent their data being exploited. This will be conducted in collaboration with existing organisations in this field and encouraging new participation on this important issue.

In this talk we will explore the problem as it currently exists, new technologies on the horizon and some of the measures we will employ to bring about change.
