The Future of Privacy in the Digital Age

In an increasingly digitalized and technological age, retaining control over one's privacy is incredibly difficult, especially when that information is broadcasted over social media forums and stored on e-commerce platforms. This lecture deals with the intersection of individual privacy rights and the interests of businesses and corporations--which often have different interests from their employees. This lecture will have panelists from both sides of the privacy debate (i.e., pro-employer and pro-employee) and will work to flesh out some of the most pertinent issues on both sides of the spectrum. Panelists will not lecture about their respective viewpoints but will engage in a civil discussion with their colleagues about how to reconcile differences and help foster a productive debate about enhancing individual privacy. Business success and individual privacy do not have to be mutually exclusive, and this discussion will help shed light on how to bring both sides closer together. 1 hour of CLE Ethics credit available.

THURSDAY, APRIL 18, FCR, 4:00 p.m.
