Keeping It Private: Navigating the Balance of Public Data and Privacy Protections (Washington State Library)

Washington State is very open with the way it shares data within the public trust. Our state has one of the most advanced public records laws in the nation and most public meetings are subject to the Open Meetings Act. At the same time, citizens have a right to privacy under the state's Constitution. On the private side, hackers are stalking personal data and data brokers are collecting and selling it. You may be putting your privacy at risk simply by leaving your phone unlocked or by sharing personal information with an organization that then makes it publicly available.
