Global Privacy and Security by Design logo

The Mission of “GPS by Design” is to dispel the commonly held view, held by governments, businesses, the media and public at large — that one must choose between privacy and public safety or business interests (data analytics). Our goal is to educate stakeholders that one can develop policies and technologies that achieve both – privacy and public safety; privacy and big data – that is, positive-sum not zero-sum.

In other words, our goal is to demonstrate that mass surveillance of personal data is not necessary to keep society safe from terrorists and criminals. In order to accomplish this goal, it will be necessary to educate by example, that is, to be able to point to technology solutions that are positive-sum in design.
