Privacy Faces its Greatest Challenge in the Digital Age
Today, much of our work, commerce, finances, and communications and interactions with others, take place through the technology of the digital world. Digital technology is everywhere we go, and with the proliferation of “smart” devices, we go everywhere with it. As a result, intrusions into our lives, whether on purpose or by accident, are inevitable, and the opportunity to share and profit from the private facts of our lives is unprecedented and nearly limitless. We appreciate the convenience that these technologies bring, but have come to rightfully be concerned that, quite apart from the services these technologies provide, their incredible computing power and ability to aggregate data threatens us with near constant surveillance and commercial and political manipulation.
Lieff Cabraser’s Privacy & Cybersecurity practice group is committed to holding the line against abuses of the awesome power of this technology, and to preserving our society’s time-honored values of privacy, self-determination, and independent thought that allows our Democracy to flourish.
