Digital Divides: Nothing to Hide

Press/Media: Expert Comment

Description

When was the last time you read all the Terms and Conditions before clicking “I agree”? We sign away our right to privacy on a daily basis, often for no more than a game. High-profile hacks have put the vulnerability of our information in the headlines.

But is it foreign actors we need to beware of, or a threat closer to home? As governments ask for ever greater surveillance capabilities, should we more urgently question powers taken in the name of security?

Featured:

Peter Lewis, Director, Centre for Responsible Technology

Dr Sacha Molitoricz, Centre for Media Transition, UTS
