Public Perceptions of Privacy and Security in the Post-Snowden Era

Posted in Privacy, Reports and White Papers on November 13th, 2014

The Pew Research Center has released Public Perceptions of Privacy and Security in the Post-Snowden Era.

Here's an excerpt:

Privacy evokes a constellation of concepts for Americans-some of them tied to traditional notions of civil liberties and some of them driven by concerns about the surveillance of digital communications and the coming era of "big data." While Americans' associations with the topic of privacy are varied, the majority of adults in a new survey by the Pew Research Center feel that their privacy is being challenged along such core dimensions as the security of their personal information and their ability to retain confidentiality.
