Just before the FBI-Apple dispute erupted, America Abroad convened an international town hall that brought together cybersecurity, policy and law experts along with privacy activists and business representatives in two locations — Austin, Texas, and Berlin, Germany.
In this episode, America Abroad features a trans-Atlantic discussion about the promise and peril of encryption; examines how governments, corporations and law enforcement try to manage big data, privacy and security; and hears from individuals who had surprising revelations about their own data.
