Four things no one is telling you about data privacy

Industry analyst, Jessica Groopman, joins Ashwin on the podcast to discuss her recent article, “Four Reasons for Optimism on International Privacy & Protection Day.” In sharing her motivation for writing the article she explains, privacy professionals “are confronted with these revelations of data malpractice and misuse and abuse every day.” Jessica couldn’t help wondering if there were room for a different perspective on data privacy.

In their conversation, Jessica delves into each of the four reasons for optimism: awareness is growing; market forces are filling the data protection vacuum; new techniques, tools and designs; and the shift from a reactive to proactive approach. Each of her insights is filtered through her unique anthropologist’s perspective of emerging tech. Her optimism is inspiring, but as she explains, “privacy is a societal thing,” and it’ll take a village to fix this.
