NEW YORK CITY – 9 May, 2017 – The New York City Privacy Board Advocates (#NYCPrivacy) invites all New Yorkers concerned about privacy to attend an outreach event on the steps of City Hall from 11 am to noon on Wednesday, May 17.
#NYCPrivacy supporters demand that the city create strong policies and oversight to keep pace with a torrent of new technologies which have the potential for unintended disclosure of individuals’ data.
Supporters of #NYCPrivacy advocate for the creation of a Privacy Guidelines Board to advise city legislators and agencies in the creation of policies that will protect New Yorkers’ data from being misused, as well as to serve as a conduit for receiving the community’s concerns.
“#NYCPrivacy,” Hartmann says, “draws inspiration from the successes of the advisory boards in Seattle and Oakland, which have been created to address the privacy concerns that new technology presents.”
#NYCPrivacy’s position is that as New York City integrates ever more powerful technologies into a large population center, a privacy guidelines board representing citizens is urgently needed.
To let your voice be heard in support of this issue, join the NYC Privacy Board Advocates on the steps of City Hall, Wednesday May 17.
