FPF Launches Virtual Privacy Book Club


Books and tablet

We are pleased to announce the launch of our Privacy Book Club! The FPF Privacy Book Club will provide members with the opportunity to read a wide range of books — privacy, data, ethics, academic works, and other important data relevant issues — and have an open discussion of the selected literature.

The FPF Privacy Book Club will be held on the last Wednesday of each month. A virtual conference dial-in will be sent to book club members, which will include a video chat, phone line, and an online chat. You can join the  Privacy Book Club by registering here. Please feel free to share the sign up link with your friends and colleagues who may be interested in participating.

The first FPF Privacy Book Club will be held Wednesday, September 26, 2018, at 2:00 pm (EST). We are excited to share that FPF Advisory Board member and author, Professor Woodrow Hartzog, will be joining the discussion to introduce his book, Privacy’s Blueprint: The Battle to Control the Design of New Technologies, and to answer a few questions. After hearing from Woody, we will host an open discussion of the book for the remainder of the meeting.
