David Spark reporting for the Electronic Frontier Foundation. I am here at the RSA Conference in San Francisco. it’s a conference all about security. The new political powers are now breeding a lot of uncertainty. Will it affect how we approach privacy and security. What do you think the Trump administration is going to do to protect your digital privacy? – Nothing. – Nothing. – I don’t think they’re going to do anything. – I don’t think he’s going to do very much at all. – I don’t think they’re knowledgeable enough on the subject to actually be able to do anything other than take away from it. – I don’t know but whatever it is they’re going to charge for it. – Who does Trump represent? Businesses. Businesses want my information. It’s their model, right? Advertising dollars, the more they know, the more money to be made. – I think they’re going to lean toward what is good for corporations, what is good for the security state. That’s going to take precedent over what’s good for the individual. – What do you think the Trump administration is going to do to protect your digital privacy. – Not much. I expect Donald Trump to cough up pretty much any private information in any random press conference or maybe in a tweet an hour from now. – I think Trump, as far as he’s concerned, it’s all public. And if he can get better intelligence, he’s going to take everything we got. – I think that’s the last thing on his mind. He’s got enough things that he’s worried about right now that seem to be very self-focused and so I don’t think he’s going to care about others yet. – I don’t imagine he’s going to do anything, but I don’t imagine he’s going to do anything much worse than his predecessors. – I don’t think that any administration from any party has any interest in protecting privacy. This is all about data acquisition because he who controls the data has the power. I’m a good person, right? So if they’re tracking… – Do you think I’m a good person? Should I be tracked, but not you? Is that the idea? – I don’t count on anybody but myself to protect my privacy. Because the government… there’s no motive for them to protect my privacy because all information is of value to them. – Don’t you think he’s going to make the Internet great again? The Internet has always been great.
