Nearly a year after former government contractor Edward Snowden revealed the extent of the NSA’s surveillance system, revelations about the global programs continue to emerge. What have we learned, what does it mean for Americans, and how much do we still not know? Go inside the stories with the journalists behind the 2014 Pulitzer-Prize winning coverage during a Behind the Headlines panel discussion hosted by the Washington Post.
The panel will address the most compelling angles of the scandal, including the Post’s editorial decision-making, consumer privacy issues, current legislation on data collection, technology industry concerns and more.

The IAPP Europe Data Protection Intensive features timely programming centred on the top issues impacting the European data protection community, with a focus on addressing the leading operational challenges. Registration will open in early 2014. Learn more.
Now more than ever, digital tools sit at a precarious tipping point, and many question whether they will be used to address pre-existing disparities, or further entrench them. Specifically, the Internet and new networked technologies often increase the threat of mass surveillance and digital discrimination against communities of color, migrant and low-wage workers, and low-income families, amplifying problems of criminalization, deportation, poverty and overall insecurity. Data mining, location tracking, fusion centers and the brokering of sensitive financial profiles require a race forward analysis.
Join us for a conversation that stretches from intent to impact. Using contemporary examples from across the country, we’ll explore what digital rights and privacy safeguards are needed to ensure our nation’s most vulnerable communities are not placed at greater risk for violations of their civil and human rights.
