The Digital Equilibrium Project

“The release of atomic power has changed everything except our way of thinking… the solution to this problem lies in the heart of mankind.” 

-Albert Einstein

Over the past year, I’ve been working closely with Arthur Coviello and Mckinsey & Company on the issue of balancing security and privacy in today’s connected world. Recent events, like Apple, Inc.’s recently filed motion to vacate an FBI order to help US government beak into the iPhone of one of the San Bernardino shooters, have moved this conversation to the forefront.  
Experts in the field should join this discussion as the Supreme Court weighs privacy and security in the modern age. There is much at stake in this single case, and engagement in the discourse will inform our very futures. This project seeks to end these kinds of standoffs and address the underlying lack of social norms and legal constructs for the digital world.
The Digital Equilibrium Project works to bring differing views together in pursuit of a digital constitution to support a safer world for individuals, organizations and nations, and to help guide policy creation, broker compromise and serve as the foundation for decision making around cybersecurity issues.
