SURVEILLANCE—EU & U.S.December 17, 2013
The most fiery discussion at the IAPP Data Protection Congress in Brussels last week came during its final session, with IAPP VP of Research and Education Omer Tene doing his best to referee a conversation between former NSA General Counsel Stewart Baker, anonymous Internet platform Tor’s Jacob Appelbaum, Vodafone CPO Stephen Deadman and Ralf Bendrath, policy advisor to German MEP and Data Protection Regulation Rapporteur Jan Philipp Albrecht. In this exclusive for The Privacy Advisor, Publications Director Sam Pfeifle details some of the highlights from the session, “Have You Been NSA’d? Government Access and the New EU Regulation,” and provides full audio of the discussion.
