[Debate] The Balance Between Privacy and Freedom

[Debate] The Balance Between Privacy and Freedom

What is the cost of being connected and having unlimited access to information? Is sacrificing privacy a tradeoff to progress or an essential right we must protect? Let’s take an inward look and debate how we should balance transparency and security.

Key Takeaways: 

  • While we live in the world where transparency is equated with honesty, we also live in a world where private information shared publicly can ruin a career, a marriage, a life. Hear different perspectives on the downsides of privacy and how transparency, in certain areas, can lead to positive transformation.
  • With new and scary players using data and information maliciously, we need to balance our collective need for security with our personal desire for privacy.
  • How do we personally select the battles worth fighting, the battles we can win? Consider what compromises you are making everyday to get the information and services you use everyday.
  • Canada is one of the world leaders in the area of Digital Identity: policy, regulation, technology.  How are private businesses and governments collaborating or should they be working together to maintain our basic rights?
