Join us for a half-day conference which will explore the benefits, risks and values at stake in evaluating corporate and government internet privacy policies.
Concerns for the privacy of online activity have been around for years. Minnesota adopted privacy regulations that apply to Internet service providers in 2002. Since then we have seen the rise of Google, MySpace, Facebook and a host of other Web-based services that have the potential to accumulate vast amounts of data about the online behavior of individuals. This conference will provide an up-to-date look at web innovation and its effect on individual liberties.
The program will include presentations from renowned experts and policy makers:
- Robert Atkinson, Founder and President, Information Technology and Innovation Foundation
- Gregory T. Nojeim, Senior Counsel, Center for Democracy & Technology and Director of its Project on Freedom, Security & Technology
- Representative Ryan Winkler, Minnesota House of Representatives
