A panel of writers, corporate leaders, and government officials examine the ethical responsibility of those who compile and track citizens’ personal data. What responsibility do corporations and governments have to protect their customers and be transparent in regard to possible data hacks? Moderated by Kim Hart, Technology Editor at Axios, panelists include Neil Chilson, Acting Chief Technologist, Federal Trade Commission; Marc DaCosta, Co-founder and Chairman, Enigma; Michelle De Mooy, Director of the Privacy & Data Project at the Center for Democracy & Technology; and John Verdi, Vice President of Policy at Future of Privacy Forum.

This program is made possible in part by the National Archives Foundation with the generous support of the William G. McGowan Charitable Fund.
