Emerging Europe Talks partnership — data protection and privacy with Julian Zawistowski

Large platforms such as Facebook, Amazon and Google collect more personal data than their users can imagine.

The sensitivity of that data depends not just on what it contains, but on how companies and governments can use it to exert influence and data privacy is as much about these platforms’ knowledge about their users as about their ability to shape their users’ personal lives.

Julian Zawistowski, a visionary, entrepreneur, and the founder of the Golem Foundation, spoke with Andrew Wrobel about how to give power back to users, how to protect personal data, donating personal data, and the challenges emerging Europe is facing as far as data security, cyber-attacks and surveillance are concerned.
