Privacy Site of the Day: Center for Democracy and Technology - Privacy Issues

This is the first in a planned series of postings highlighting websites with a privacy focus that I've happened upon and bookmarked as useful resources for future reference.

The first "Privacy Site of the Day" is put out by the Center for Democracy and Technology, a well-respected organization that is on the cutting edge of issues related to the democratization of cyberspace. Its mission statement says it much more eloquenly than I can (on a Labour Day morning):

The Center for Democracy and Technology works to promote democratic values and constitutional liberties in the digital age. With expertise in law, technology, and policy, CDT seeks practical solutions to enhance free expression and privacy in global communications technologies. CDT is dedicated to building consensus among all parties interested in the future of the Internet and other new communications media.

The CDT's Privacy Issues page includes a wide range of resources, including policy papers and consumer privacy guides. Definitely worth bookmarking.

I'm going to try to post one a day, but I can't promise to be that regimented as work/life gets crazy-busy after labour day. I'd also invite readers to submit their favourites, either in the blog's comments or via e-mail: david.fraser(at) (replace the "(at)" with "@").
