Download: Greenwald on the Value of Privacy

CybersecurityZapproved has published a complimentary recap of the PREX17 keynote address by Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Glenn Greenwald, which explores the boundary layer between law and technology in the connected society.

In the fallout of the Edward Snowden NSA leaks, he explores the reasons why monitoring and evaluating the impact of our technology are crucial and discusses in detail:

  • When weighing the importance of privacy, consider all of your personal information from all of your email accounts, social profiles and medical profiles.
  • Ten years ago technology was the number one way privacy was compromised. Now, technology is the number one leading tool for how privacy is protected.
  • Digital surveillance has become so prevalent and consequential that the NSA’s motto for their citizen surveillance programs is “Collect it all.”
