The Future of Privacy Technology


Today, FPF is making available a report co-authored by CEO Jules Polonetsky and Policy Fellow Jeremy Greenberg that identifies future directions and requirements of privacy technology from the industry perspective.

With support by the National Science Foundation under Grant No. 1939288, a survey was designed and administered to industry privacy leaders to provide input on the future of privacy technology as relates to their business and policy needs and objectives. In the report, the authors outline three major areas that are especially ripe for investment and development: 

  1. Privacy Enhancing Technical Tools; 
  2. Administrative and Compliance Tools; and 
  3. Self-Regulatory and Policy Tools.

Private sector demand and readiness to collaborate is a factor in the launch and groundswell of activities associated with the Privacy Tech Alliance, an initiative established by FPF to advance privacy enhancing technology in commercial, government and not-for-profit sectors.
