Privacy vs. National Security

The privacy vs. national security debate will be a critical presidential campaign topic.

The fallout from Edward Snowden's revelations has been unfolding ever since his initial disclosure in 2013. His revelations illustrated to the world just how far governments had gone in encroaching on personal privacy, and set in motion a debate that should come to a head in 2016.

Events such as the Paris attacks and the overturning of the EU-U.S. Safe Harbor data transfer pact are fanning the flames of the data privacy debate, and the latter issue should be a hot button item in 2016's presidential race. Staying informed on the outcome of this decision will be essential for organizations planning to do business in Europe, and this is just the first example of how privacy concerns can affect the private sector. As the presidential race narrows in 2016 to two candidates, organizations will need to stay informed of each candidate's stance on privacy, as well as their proposals to balance privacy with national security and what role technology companies will play.

In the cybersecurity world, 2015 was a year marked by Big Data breaches and the emergence of the privacy vs. national security debate. It's safe to say, therefore, that companies in 2016 will turn to security experts to ensure that they aren't caught off guard by the shifting threat and regulatory landscapes. As many companies consider security to be their biggest concern for 2016, it's important to be prepared and not be caught unaware.
