CSCI 1951F - Computers, Freedom and Privacy: Current Topics in Law and Policy
Who is the Big Brother that we most fear? NSA -- or is it Google and Facebook? Privacy is an intensely personal value that complicates efforts to define it. Increasingly broad surveillance and rapidly changing social mores have led many to argue that privacy is dead. New laws, institutions and organizations have been created to protect privacy. The EU has a comprehensive data protection regime. The United States has a growing list of statutory and regulatory privacy rules. This course will involve all aspects of privacy, including comparative models for privacy protection and discussions of current controversies and possible reforms. WRIT
