Summer's a busy time for most. There's family vacations to be had, suntans to accomplish, and, if you're lucky, some amazing music festivals to attend. It's understandable if you've missed out on the latest podcasts featured weekly via The Privacy Advisor. But we want to help you get caught up. Whether you like to listen while you're driving home from work or chopping onions for dinner, here's a list of the July/August podcasts, for your listening pleasure.
The Privacy Advisor Podcast: Max Schrems (Aug 19, 2016) It's really kind of a remarkable story, when you think about it. Max Schrems, a law student in Austria, does a stint abroad at Santa Clara University School of Law. A Facebook executive comes to his class to talk business. Schrems digests what he's heard and decides he's got issue issue with the way Facebook is handling EU data given national security authorities' potential access to it. He files a complaint with the Irish Data Protection Commissioner and, in the end, after a whole lot of legal back-and-forth, the European Commission invalidates a Safe Harbor, putting thousands of companies who'd been relying on it to transfer data overseas in a big-time lurch. It didn't necessarily make him popular.
In this podcast, Schrems talks about his ongoing case, which he describes as getting ping-ponged around because no one wants to actually deal with it. He talks about why he doesn’t think privacy is his life’s work, why he doesn’t think comparisons to Snowden make sense, and why it’s time for privacy pros to think about a culture shift. Oh, and he also makes one thing clear: He’s not Jesus Christ.
The Privacy Advisor Podcast: Megan Price
(Aug 5, 2016) Megan Price is executive director of the Human Rights Data Analysis Group. Her work is to analyze data extracted from situations where there are human rights violations; think massive deaths in Syria or Colombia, for example, to determine death tolls or perpetrators in the name of finding justice. It’s dangerous work. But when things go well, Megan’s group is called to testify in court on behalf of the prosecution. Price was also recently named to the board of directors of the Tor Project.
