The Journey of Privacy in the U.S. – Interview With Bruce Schneier | ADCG Podcast: Ep. 33

31 minute listen | June.09.2021

“Data is toxic, and companies are ‘punch drunk’ on it, storing too much, and bringing risk to their organizations,” says Bruce Schneier, a self-described “public-interest technologist,” on this week’s episode. The discussion focuses on the government’s role in ensuring a safe communications environment and whether it should have backdoors to software and access to encryption keys.

Schneier, who works at the intersection of security, technology, and people, is a fellow and lecturer at Harvard Kennedy School, a board member of the Electronic Frontier Foundation, and the Chief of Security Architecture at Inrupt, Inc.
