Internet Privacy Today (04:46)

Consumers feel they have lost control of how their personal information is collected and used. Vogel describes how people's expectations evolved after the advent of social media. "The Right to Be Forgotten" only applies to European Union citizens and websites.

Internet Privacy: The US vs the EU (09:47)

Customer and corporate data needs to be secured. CIOs need to make privacy a top priority, recognize that customer trust will be lost if breached, understand customer data collection, and understand the challenge of deleting customer information. Vogel describes how the E.U. protects its citizens more than the U.S. and "Right to Be Forgotten" loopholes.

Internet Privacy: The US vs Other Countries (04:39)

The Federal Trade Commission ruled that a website has no obligation to have a privacy policy. The EU, Canada, Japan, and New Zealand possess much stricter privacy laws that are well regulated; if a citizen of the EU sends an email to a U.S. corporation, it becomes debatable which country's law applies. Vogel explains the responsibilities of CIOs and IT professionals to protect privacy.

Conclusion: Free Speech, Internet Privacy, and the 'Right to Be Forgotten' (05:57)

Because the EU is such an important part of the U.S. Gross National Product, it is important to comply and be respectful of their laws. Globally, courts are supportive of privacy policies and terms of service. Vogel suggests subscribing to and use common sense to protect your privacy.

Freedom of speech is an ideal that historians tell us has its roots in the early 5th century; the concept is generally credited to the ancient Greeks. The right to privacy is an equally coveted principle that has had an interesting history as well. In fact, Louis Brandeis, a prominent lawyer and justice of the US Supreme Court, published an article in the 1890 Harvard Law Review extolling the right to privacy. Today, protecting freedom of speech and the right to privacy are center stage concerns, with the Internet being the leading area of focus. In this program, attorney and technologist Peter Vogel discusses free speech and Internet privacy. By watching this report, viewers will gain valuable insight and understanding into these critical issues of the day. Upon successful completion of this segment, you should be able to: recognize the critical nature of free speech and privacy in our digital world today, understand the “right to be forgotten,“ a recent landmark ruling by the EU courts, and discuss the differences between privacy laws and mindsets in countries around the globe.
