Coding for Privacy: The Power of Engineers to Protect Our Fundamental Rights

John Grant Director of Privacy and Civil Liberties Engineering, Palantir Technologies

The role of engineers and computer scientists in protecting civil liberties is often overlooked, and yet many of the basic technical decisions that they make on a daily basis can significantly affect these rights. Engineers have an ethical responsibility to design and build capabilities that can be used in a way that preserves our freedoms. In this interactive discussion, John Grant – Director of Privacy and Civil Liberties Engineering at Palantir Technologies and co-author of The Architecture of Privacy – presents a brief history of the fundamental role that engineers have played in ensuring that privacy protections we enjoy today are possible. Then, with the help of the audience, he demonstrates privacy engineering in practice by working through the design of a hypothetical data analytics capability and identifying potential risks to privacy and civil liberties and then suggesting technical capabilities that can mitigate those risks.
