Description

The Fourth Amendment to the Constitution guarantees the right of the people to be “secure in their persons, houses, papers and effects against unreasonable searches and seizures.” But as the digital world advances, corporations, including big tech and the government, know more and more about us than ever before, straining traditional notions of privacy. What do corporations and big tech know about us, how do they use that information? What is the relationship between big tech and the government, and how does that threaten your privacy? And what are the implications of the Supreme Court’s Carpenter decision, which held that cell phone users have 4th Amendment rights in their historical cell-site location records? Join us for a discussion with three experts as they discuss the rise of the surveillance state and the threats to privacy by corporations and the government.
