i2Coalition Executive Director and Co-Founder, Christian Dawson, will be speaking at the Rayburn House Office Building alongside representatives from Google, Mozilla, and Twilio for on critical privacy issues, including Section 702, ECPA, encryption, cross-border data flows, and more. As many readers of this post already know, these are issues the i2Coalition has long worked on.
“There is still an incredible amount of work to be done to restore consumer confidence to the cloud. We are eager to continue our efforts to educate Congress on how protecting privacy rights online directly leads to economic job growth in the United States,” said Dawson.
The event is organized by the Fourth Amendment Advisory Committee, an advisory council made up of representatives from the civil society and business spheres, to the Fourth Amendment Congressional Caucus
Companies’ ability and responsibility to keep people’s information private has massive consequences on individuals’ privacy rights. As the kinds and volume of data they hold about us continue to grow so does the significance of their role as a steward of the public’s information.
Please join the Fourth Amendment Advisory Committee for a conversation with some of the companies and organizations at the center of this discussion, including Google, the i2Coalition, Mozilla, and Twilio.
What privacy issues do they see as most in need of Congressional attention? What vulnerabilities pose the greatest risks to the public? Some topics we’ll cover are cross-border data sharing, encryption, ECPA, and Section 702. Snacks and refreshments will be served.
Congressional staff and interns only.
