The battle of 2020: our privacy. Forever lost or partly recovered?

Governments, intelligence agencies and companies are constantly on the lookout for new technologies, to harvest your and my personal data. While the European legislators have put enormous pressure on private companies to comply with the complicated GDPR, local and national governments are increasingly aggressive in implementing new tools, new frameworks and new legislation that puts forward a promise of total safety, in return for our rights & liberties.

Was 1984 a manual, as some say? Can we still turn the tide, and make privacy yet again relevant? Because privacy does not belong to lawyers, tech experts or philosophers, it belongs to all of us. It’s not just a human right, it is a human need. What will the future bring? It’s up to us, to decide.
