RSA Conference : Finding Balance Between Surveillance & Safety

I was recently interviewed by Britta Grade from RSA Conference with Jules Polonetsky from the Future of Privacy Forum on tracing apps and the balance between surveillance and safety. As countries across the globe work through various phases of opening and trying to return to a new COVID-19-tinged normal, contact tracing is a core tenant to many plans. The slippery slope of providing data to authorities to understand if shelter at home guidance is being followed to potentially using this data to alert individuals to potential exposure can serve a short term good to public safety measures, but this data is persistent, so what are the longer term downsides to increased surveillance activities. Who is the custodian of this data? How might it be utilized? How should it be governed?

Many new shades of grey have emerged in the last few months are explored in this podcast available on the RSA Conference.
