The Internet, social media and the Internet of Things are dramatically reducing the cost of collecting and sharing information. One result is that it is becoming easier to track what companies and governments are doing. Another result is that whistleblowers, malicious hackers, and organizations like Wikileaks can disseminate huge quantities of confidential information (e.g. government memos, Swiss bank records, and phone recordings). Are we seeing an inevitable trend towards transparency? Or will companies and organizations find ways to lock down their networks and their information? If radical transparency is inevitable, what should organizations do to adapt?

Join us for an informal roundtable discussion with:

  • David Brin – Noted science fiction writer, futurist, and author of “The Transparent Society”
  • Mary Ellen Callahan – Chair, Privacy and Information Governance Practice, Jenner & Block
  • Greg Elin — GovReady.org and former Chief Data Officer, FCC
  • Allan Holmes — The Center for Public Integrity
  • Tom Lee – Director, Sunlight Labs
  • Mark Rasch – Chief Privacy and Data Security Officer, SAIC

Moderator: Michael Nelson – Principal Technology Policy Strategist, Microsoft
