About the event
Many people believe that privacy is dead, but in fact, nothing could be further from the truth. On January 26, Washington University Law professor and world-renowned privacy expert Neil Richards will talk about his new book "Why Privacy Matters." Richards will explain how and why privacy isn’t dead—but how it is very much up for grabs. In this entertaining talk, Professor Richards will explain what privacy is and what isn't and will talk about the many important, valuable things that privacy can do for us as individual humans, consumers, and as citizens of a democratic society.
