Privacy vs. Law Enforcement: Policy vs. Technology: Options and Trade-Offs | Medzinárodný kongres ITAPA 2015: No BordersPolice needs certain privileged access to information for investigation and to produce facts for the court. As police powers are in potential conflict with human rights and privacy, they are regulated by law. In the wake of the Internet law enforcement is challenged with new global threats and citizens are increasingly becoming aware that their privacy is threatened by surveillance and algorithmic data analysis. Ideally, law enforcement would be governed by courts and parliament to assure that their measures are appropriate and effective. This should establish the processes that citizens can go beyond a position of uninformed trust into law enforcement agencies.

This talk is looking into the viability of technology to improve privacy and compares the options to organizational measures.
