Ancilla van de Leest

Ethics & Human Rights in a Digital Society

In an environment with endless technical possibilities and need for convenience, what safeguards do we have to protect ourselves from commercial exploitation? What can we expect from our politicians? Does an individual citizen hold any responsibility for our mutual future and that of coming generations? What accountability do companies hold? Answers to these question, and more insights from Ancilla.


Ancilla van de Leest is Lead Privacy Advisor at Brunel and Dutch front runner for the international political movement Pirate Party. Both in a corporate environment, as in the political landscape, she aims to preserve human rights in an increasingly digitalised world.
