Join Us For Seattle Speaks: “Privacy Politics”

In our open data, cloud computing world, privacy is a key issue that continually needs to be addressed. The City of Seattle recently adopted its own set of Privacy Principles to keep our citizens informed and protected and to provide transparency.  Our department-specific  Privacy Tool Kits will be implemented in the coming months.

Seattle is taking the lead on privacy issues, but as technology changes, so will privacy initiatives.   With that in mind, the next topic for Seattle City Club’s Seattle Speaks series is “Privacy Politics.”
