Collective Intelligence Podcast, Bruce Schneier on Data Collection and Privacy
SAN FRANCISCO—Flashpoint Editorial Director Mike Mimoso talks to security expert, cryptography pioneer and author Bruce Schneier about the security and privacy implications of rampant data collection by organizations.
This podcast was recorded today at RSA Conference 2018.
Mike and Bruce discuss whether market pressure can impose a change on these practices, or if legislation is the inevitable outcome. Bruce also discusses how privacy has changed in recent years and why younger generations have “different defaults” when it comes to sharing personal information.
Finally, the conversation switches to the impending GDPR legislation and the impact it will have on multinational companies, and wraps up with a discussion on the continuing pressure on legitimate security research and what organizations can do about it.
