In today's increasingly connected world, proactive data monitoring makes it possible for organizations to listen to their communities and evaluate interactions, creating rich insights into digital engagement. But wonderful as these technologies are, there are challenges—especially when it comes to government use. Data monitoring can raise questions about privacy, what information the government is collecting, and how it is being used. This discussion will explore how governments can balance these very real concerns with their need for situational awareness, data-driven strategy, and community engagement.
On Thursday, June 26, at 5:30 p.m., Future Tense, Digital Diplomacy Coalition, and the New America Foundation’s Open Technology Institute will host a conversation about digital diplomacy and proactive monitoring with:
