Cities around the world are using data to become more efficient and to better meet the needs of their residents. The problem, though, is that as more and more information is gathered, cities may be inadvertently surveilling their populations. Additionally, improper storage and handling of collected data can lead to theft or other losses. The good news is that the City of Portland is working to protect your data and your privacy!

Hector Dominguez, the Open Data Coordinator at Smart City PDX, within Portland's Bureau of Planning and Sustainability, is working with other city groups, and even groups from other cities, to determine the best policies and practices for privacy and data protection in Portland. The result of their work is a set of privacy and information principles to be approved by Portland City Council and then implemented as citywide policy.

In this interactive presentation, Hector will review the privacy and information principles as well as the impacts on both city services and the various communities within the city.

Join us for a great presentation and discussion about privacy in Portland, how the privacy and information principles will affect you, and how you can help! We'll have snacks, and there will be an opportunity for networking afterwards. We hope to see you there!
