Privacy As Trust: Information Privacy for an Information Age

Monday, April 16, 2018, 6:00pm – 7:30pm, W400

The Innovation Center for Law and Technology recognized the publication of Professor Ari Ezra Waldman’s new book Privacy as Trust: Information Privacy for an Information Age.

It seems like there is no such thing as privacy anymore, but the truth is that privacy is in danger only because we think about it in narrow, limited, and outdated ways.

In this transformative work, Professor Ari Ezra Waldman, leveraging the notion that we share information with others in contexts of trust, offers a roadmap for data privacy law that will better protect our information in a digitized world.

Dean Anthony W. Crowell, University of Maryland Francis King Carey School of Law Professor Frank Pasquale, a renowned expert in information law and policy, and Professor Ari Ezra Waldman debated and discussed this new work.
