Quantum Policy: How Technology is Shaping Privacy, and How Law and Policy Can Keep Up
Nov. 20, 2017
April Falcon Doss
Non-fiction: History/Politics/Current Affairs
In an era of unprecedented data aggregation, the trade-offs between individual privacy, personal convenience, and national security and cybersecurity have never been more challenging to negotiate. Meant for the lay reader, this book pulls together disparate strands of data – government action, private sector data collection, international privacy perspectives, and emerging case law around the world – and offers a refreshed treatment of traditional notions of privacy, along with an explanation of how and why those traditional models are stretched to the breaking point by today’s technology. It looks at examples of technology-specific law and regulation that have proven to be too confining. It examines cross-disciplinary efforts that have led to sound and effective evolution of law and policy to keep up with technology. And it offers recommendations on how to achieve “quantum policy” – that is, how to keep law and policy evolving at a pace that more closely matches the accelerating changes in new technology and in how big data gets used.
