I created this cartoon to celebrate Data Privacy Week, which used to be Data Privacy Day. Despite my poking fun, I think that Data Privacy Week is a great thing, though I wish as much attention were paid to privacy during the rest of the year!
I’ll be speaking about foundational privacy conceptions in a fireside chat with Prof. Woodrow Harzog and moderated by Lourdes Turrecha at The Rise of Privacy Tech (TROPT) Data Privacy Day event (2 PM ET on Jan 26, 2022).
TROPT is the main event focusing on the privacy tech landscape, where innovators, investors, engineers, and experts come together.
I’m thrilled to able to share with you a full comp to register to attend any part of the event.
Please use my free comped link to register to attend my talk (Jan 26 at 2 PM ET) and the rest of this great event.
The event will be virtual this year.
In this free webinar, Prof. Daniel Solove discusses with a panel of experts the privacy issues to watch out for this year. Speakers include:
- Maneesha Mithal (Partner, Wilson Sonsini, formerly FTC)
- Omer Tene (Partner, Goodwin)

The webinar will be held on Thursday, January 20, 2022 at 2 PM Eastern Time.
Nothing to Hide: The False Tradeoff
Between Privacy and Security
I posted the full text of my book, NOTHING TO HIDE: THE FALSE TRADEOFF BETWEEN PRIVACY AND SECURITY (Yale University Press 2011) on SSRN for free.
Privacy law compliance and data breach response involve tasks of great complexity and scale that can quickly overwhelm an organization’s privacy team. Technologies have emerged to automate these tasks, but there are many decisions to make about which tasks to automate and which solutions to use.
I recently had a chance to chat with Andy Lunsford is CEO and Founder of BreachRx, a technology company that automates privacy incident and breach response. Prior to founding BreachRx, Andy spent 15 years working in privacy law and large-scale commercial litigation. Andy has a BA from Washington and Lee University, a JD from the University of Arkansas, and an MBA from the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania.
Here’s a cartoon about the nothing-to-hide argument. One of the most common arguments of those unconcerned about government surveillance or privacy invasions is “I’ve got nothing to hide.”
I wrote a book addressing this argument and other faulty arguments made in the debate about privacy versus security. Recently, I posted the full text of my book, NOTHING TO HIDE: THE FALSE TRADEOFF BETWEEN PRIVACY AND SECURITY (Yale University Press 2011) on SSRN for free.
I’m delighted to announce that I have posted the full text of my book, NOTHING TO HIDE: THE FALSE TRADEOFF BETWEEN PRIVACY AND SECURITY (Yale University Press 2011) on SSRN for free. With the press’s permission, I’m posting the entire book on SSRN, free for personal use. Students assigned the book for a class may also download it for free.
I have also posted the full text of some of my other books on SSRN:
THE DIGITAL PERSON: TECHNOLOGY AND PRIVACY IN THE INFORMATION AGE (NYU Press 2004)
THE FUTURE OF REPUTATION: GOSSIP, RUMOR, AND PRIVACY ON THE INTERNET (Yale University Press 2007)
