Collective Intelligence Podcast, Eva Galperin on Championing Privacy
Flashpoint Editorial Director Mike Mimoso talks to Eva Galperin of the Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF) about the high stakes of online privacy, defending human rights, and protecting vulnerable populations against surveillance and censorship.
This conversation took place this week at RSA Conference 2018.
Eva shares her fascinating background, emigrating to the U.S. from the Soviet Union, and how escaping an authoritarian state helped shape her passion for championing privacy and her advocacy for oppressed people and vulnerable populations here and abroad.
Mike and Eva discuss her work on dissecting nation-state malware and how its used for surveillance, and how she sets priorities and works toward outcomes in each of these investigations. The conversation also moves toward privacy and younger people and dismantling the notion that kids don’t care about their privacy. They do.
