About the content

Dr. Fred Cate’s talk revolves around the current approach to data privacy. He analyzes the role that consent plays in data protection and privacy today, grappling with how we manage consent in a world in which data is constantly being inferred about us. In a chaotic world, he emphasizes that it is important that we ask for consent in a meaningful and effective manner. Fred H. Cate is Vice President for Research, Distinguished Professor, and C. Ben Dutton Professor of Law at Indiana University. He specializes in information security and privacy law and has testified before numerous congressional committees and served on many advisory groups for companies and governmental and international organizations. He served as the founding director of IU’s Center for Applied Cybersecurity Research from 2003 to 2014, where he is now a senior fellow. He is also a senior policy advisor to the Centre for Information Policy Leadership and one of the founding editors of the Oxford University Press journal, International Data Privacy Law. He is the author of more than 200 articles and books, including most recently "Bulk Collection: Systematic Government Access to Private-Sector Data" (with Jim Dempsey) published in 2017 by Oxford University Press. Professor Cate attended Oxford University and received his J.D. and his A.B. with Honors and Distinction from Stanford University. A former Senator and President of the Phi Beta Kappa Society, he is a fellow of Phi Beta Kappa and the American Bar Foundation, and an elected member of the Council on Foreign Relations and the American Law Institute. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at
