The government is working on formulating guidelines to regulate social media citing "growing threats to individual rights and nation's integrity, sovereignty, and security" . While there is recognition for the need for security considering that the technological world is expanding at an unimaginable pace, there are also growing concerns about the use of technology for surveillance of citizens, especially those critical of those in power. The latest draft on intermediary guidelines has given rise to similar concerns. Companies say that it's impossible to give up encryption due to technical reasons as well as commitment to users. But this is not a demand being made by India alone. Many Western countries are also making similar demands. On this episode of We The People, we debate, how can privacy and security be balanced and what are the concerns that authorities should keep in mind while drafting these guidelines.
