Who Is Responsible for Online Privacy?

Online privacy: me or we?

October 4, 2021

We are increasingly aware that online privacy is an illusion in many cases. After a stream of privacy investigations, publicized data breaches, and insider leaks, trust is plummeting and it appears that most efforts from governments and Tech Giants to deliver change have fallen short. The issues involved in online privacy are complicated, and placing responsibility for protecting personal data solely on the individual web visitor is unrealistic and misplaced. The one thing most of us can agree upon is that personal data must be protected. So, as an organization with a website, where does that responsibility land?
