Shifting norms in privacy are changing the face of our democracy day by day. In fact, people today make frequent agreements involving exchange of their personal data, offering control to other parties for services rendered. During this session, we will focus on how these changing social norms are influencing the way that people, corporations, and governments view, collect, and use data.


Dipayan Ghosh is a policy advisor at Facebook, where he advises on privacy issues. Prior, he was a technology policy advisor at the White House. In that capacity, he supported administration efforts to advance strong consumer privacy protections. He completed a doctorate in electrical engineering from Cornell University, where he studied the economics of information privacy.
