European cooperation with US dataveillance

Lee Tien and Katitza Rodriguez of the Electronic Frontier Foundation kindly invited me to join them at the last minute on a panel on current privacy hot topics at the 2010 conference on Computers, Freedom, and Privacy which I’ve been attending this week at San Jose State University. (Kudos to the organizers and the student volunteers for an exceptionally smooth-running event!)

By popular demand, here’s a PDF version of the slides from my report on some of the issues I spent April working on in Europe, and the state of play in the European Parliament:

SWIFT, PNR, and more: European cooperation with USA dataveillance in the “war on terror”

Feel free to contact me if you have questions: the slides weren’t intended to be, and probably aren’t, entirely self-explanatory, and we covered a lot of ground very quickly in the conference session.

Additional background links, including those that came up in response to questions:

"Don't believe anything just because you read it on the Internet. Anyone can say anything on the Internet, and they do. The Internet is the most effective medium in history for the rapid global propagation of rumor, myth, and false information." (From The Practical Nomad Guide to the Online Travel Marketplace, 2001)
