All for Privacy and Justice for All: The Critical Role Privacy Plays in Social Justice
Aug 04, 2020 Season 1 Episode 26
Paul Breitbarth and K Royal of TrustArc, Pedro Pavon

Privacy is not a luxury, yet marginalized populations are more scrutinized and adversely impacted. How do we build equality into the data and practices on using data? It is no surprise that in today’s day and age, data is ubiquitous. Every step we take is documented by multiple devices, from our smartphones and smart watches to street cameras, allowing for massive data sets to be created. 

Hardly anyone understands all that is happening with these data, but we do know they are being used for marketing purposes. But what if the data would also be used for the greater good, like we are for example seeing in the current Corona Crisis? Would it for example also be possible to use more data for social justice, in order to promote equality, or to prevent crime? But this could also lead to some darker use patterns for data.

K Royal and Paul Breitbarth discuss these critical issues with Pedro Pavón, Senior Corporate Counsel at Salesforce.com.  He has held privacy roles in multiple cloud companies, but also has a passion for ensuring that tech remains a force for good.  Join us as we discuss powerful topics, touching on racial bias, flawed data, and the role that inclusion plays at all levels of an organization to create a more socially just world.
