The Privacy Working Group

The purpose of the Privacy Working Group is to improve the quality of the debate about privacy and security issues by creating more informed policymakers and advocates. We do this by bringing together an influential group of policy experts and thought leaders from across the political spectrum to share and discuss new research, legislation, best practices, trends and emerging issues about security and privacy. The Privacy Working Group meets monthly, and all conversations are off-the-record to encourage a more robust discussion among participants. Individuals from government, non-profits, and universities are all welcome to attend. Meetings are hosted by the Information Technology and Innovation Foundation and Citizens Against Government Waste.
