CIS Non-Residential Fellow Catherine Crump wil be presenting at the Cetner for Information Technology Policy at Princeton University.
Today it is easier to record and analyze information about what each of us says and does more than ever before. And while this used to be true primarily about activity on the Internet, today’s incredibly cheap cameras and sensors mean that constant data collection is rapidly proliferating in the offline world. Given this inexorable trend, will there be any privacy left? In particular, what is to become of restrictions on the government’s power to engage in surveillance of private citizens, and what will the Fourth Amendment’s prohibition on “unreasonable searches” mean in the 21st century? Join an attorney with the ACLU’s Speech, Privacy & Technology Project for a tour of the organization’s recent work to ensure that as technology advances, civil liberties will not be left behind. Topics will include the ACLU’s recent litigation against the NSA’s mass call-logging program.
