Dertouzos Distinguished Lecture: Sen. Ron Wyden

Wednesday, September 30, 2020 at 4:00pm to 5:00pm

Virtual Event

Oregon Senator Ron Wyden was elected to the U.S. Senate in 1996. Wyden has consistently pushed for smart tech policies that put users – not powerful corporations – first.

Wyden coauthored the bipartisan Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act, wrote the first net neutrality bill and has defended strong encryption against threats from short-sighted government officials.

Wyden, a fierce advocate for strong data privacy protections, last fall introduced the most comprehensive bill to protect Americans’ personal details online, the Mind Your Own Business Act. This sweeping piece of legislation would also hold corporate executives accountable for abusing personal information.
