Privacy by Design, Default and Choice by Arthur Brock, Grant Gallo, Guo Liu, and Liz Steininger

Presented by Arthur Brock, Grant Gallo, Guo Liu, and Liz Steininger

The panel will explore the practical meaning of privacy by design and privacy by default, along with how to empower users to understand the implications of their choices. Although I didn't have time to recruit panelists before this submission, they should be people who have worked on privacy enhancing technologies and have experience interacting with users of such tools.

Some potential questions for the panelists: How much is enough privacy in a design? How do we make more privacy the default (when the current defaults are so little)? How much should users be made aware about the defaults and be given choices? How does individual choice factor into the privacy needs of society and the common good? How do we decentralize privacy?
