Tech Talk: GDPR, Privacy Past and Present
Written by Brian Wesolowski
CDT’s Tech Talk is a podcast where we dish on tech and Internet policy, while also explaining what these policies mean to our daily lives. You can find Tech Talk on SoundCloud, iTunes, and Google Play.
If you love privacy, this is the Tech Talk for you!
Europe’s General Data Protection Regulation or the GDPR is finally here. In this episode we talk with CDT’s resident GDPR expert Joe Jerome about what it means for businesses both in Europe and the US, and what it means for your personal data.
We also hear from Sarah Igo, Associate Professor of History at Vanderbilt University, about how the meaning of privacy has evolved over time in the United States and how that changing notion of privacy has impacted policy and society. Her new book, The Known Citizen: A History of Privacy in Modern America, is a must read.
