The Battle Over Privacy: Gov vs Tech

WHAT IT IS

WHY IT MATTERS

Tech companies and the government are battling over whether the government should be granted case-by-case access to personal data for public safety or if private data should be kept private, no matter what situation. The debates underway directly affect everyone’s personal privacy.

WHERE WE ARE NOW

THINGS TO THINK ABOUT

  • Should exceptions to companies’ privacy policies be made for saving lives?
  • Will giving our government the right to view our personal data create mistrust?
  • Would you purchase Apple products if you knew that under certain circumstances the government is allowed to access your data?
  • Should we prioritize privacy and discretion over safety?
