Data Privacy In the Digital Age
Do you think the government should do more to protect user privacy online?
As if the COVID-19 pandemic, social unrest, and recent climate-induced events weren't enough, personal privacy online is also in the news. TikTok, a social video platform, has come under fire and is making headlines with the potential sale to a U.S. based company. The conversation has us thinking ... what can we do we to protect our privacy?
TikTok has felt pressure as of late, being labeled as a potential threat to U.S. national security. The current administration argues that the parent company, ByteDance, might have to hand over data about Americans to the Chinese government if asked.
This controversy brings a bigger issue to light - user privacy online and what our government can do to protect us. Here are a few steps we can take as a country:
- establish personal data as a property right through a consumer data bill of rights
- reaffirm basic civil liberties and privacy rights by protecting our data online.
As everything we do -- from work, to school, to shopping, to socializing moves online -- our privacy is more important now than ever before.
