International Conference of Data Protection and Privacy

Dr. Katherine Albrecht to Speak at Montreal

For the next two days, I will join with my colleagues from around the world to inform Canadian, American, and world leaders about new surveillance technologies that put us all at risk. I will be speaking in Montreal, Canada at the following events:

International Conference of Data Protection and Privacy Commissioners Organized by the Office of the Privacy Commissioner of Canada September 25 to 28, 2007 http://www.privacyconference2007.gc.ca/Terra_Incognita_speakers_E.html

and

Civil Society Privacy Workshop: Privacy Rights in a World Under Surveillance

Organized by the International Civil Liberties Monitoring Group

Tuesday, September 25, 2007 http://www.thepublicvoice.org/events/montreal07/default.html

In my panel talks, I will emphasize the importance of free markets and consumer action as the solution to the "privacy problem." I will ask regulators to give consumers the tools we need to act in our own best interest -- tools like clear labels on all items tagged with RFID.

I will remind decision makers that we have a right to go about our business in peace without corporate and government busybodies remotely pawing through our purses and backpacks. I will tell them that we don't want authoritarians, bureaucrats, ethically challenged corporations, or tech-savvy criminals to track us around the clock -- or at all.

Finally, I will call for an end to the cozy lobbyist-regulator relationships that have undermined the work of citizen-activists worldwide. Although companies like IBM, developer of the RFID-reading "Person Tracking Unit," may have deeper pockets and fewer scruples than the citizens it proposes to spy on, we have greater numbers and far greater passion.

Below is a press release from the Office of the Privacy Commissioner of Canada announcing the event. You will note that I have the dubious distinction of being mentioned in the same paragraph as Michael Chertoff, Secretary of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security. When I see him, I'll send him your regards -- and ask why he is so intent on creating a police state in America.

Wish me well!

In freedom, Katherine Albrecht, Ed.D.

ABOUT CASPIAN

CASPIAN (Consumers Against Supermarket Privacy Invasion and Numbering) is a grass-roots consumer group fighting retail surveillance schemes since 1999 and irresponsible RFID use since 2002. With thousands of members in all 50 U.S. states and over 30 countries worldwide, CASPIAN seeks to educate consumers about marketing strategies that invade their privacy and encourage privacy-conscious shopping habits across the retail spectrum.


ABOUT THE BOOK

"Spychips" is the winner of the 2006 Lysander Spooner Award for Advancing the Literature of Liberty and has received wide critical acclaim. Authored by recent Harvard graduate Dr. Katherine Albrecht and former bank examiner Liz McIntyre, the book is meticulously researched. "Spychips" draws on patent documents, corporate source materials, conference proceedings, and firsthand interviews to paint a convincing -- and frightening -- picture of the threat posed by RFID.

Despite its hundreds of footnotes and academic-level accuracy, the book remains lively, readable, and hilarious, according to critics, who have called it a "techno-thriller" and "a masterpiece of technocriticism."

"A chilling story about an emerging future in which spychips run amok as Big Brother and Big Shopkeeper invade our privacy in unprecedented ways.”" - Chicago Tribune

"Paints a 1984-ish picture of how corporations would like to use RFID tags to keep tabs on you." - The Associated Press
