Professor Reidenberg writes: "The Snowden disclosures are just the tip of the iceberg for privacy in the information ecosystem.  The exponential growth in the collection, mining, and outsourcing of personal information to the cloud by businesses and schools force policymakers to grapple with designing new rules that will allow access to needed information while providing adequate protection for data privacy.   National and international conflicts abound.  What are the priorities for policymakers? What factors do policymakers need to consider?"
