Privacy Faces its Greatest Challenge in the Digital Age
Today, our work, commerce, finances, and communications and interactions with others occur largely online, facilitated by digital technology that tracks us everywhere, impacting our choices, behavior, and well-being. These constant intrusions into our lives, whether on purpose or by accident, allow unprecedented and nearly limitless opportunities for companies to share and profit from our personal and private information. While we appreciate the convenience that these technologies bring, we are just as concerned that unchecked, these technologies are using their incredible computing power and data aggregation abilities to threaten 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 caused by 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.
