Surveillance tech companies are leveraging the fear and confusion around the COVID19 pandemic to overstep their boundaries and increase surveillance, especially the surveillance of Black and brown folks. Founding Director and Senior Fellow Malkia Devich-Cyril talks to Protocol about the need to hold them accountable.

“Digital apps and technology have struggled in the in-between space of wanting to track the path of this disease, this virus, while at the same time really struggling with very real privacy concerns… The simple fact of a medical disaster is not enough to turn people away from their desire for basic freedoms and rights.”
