Thank you all for your really good suggestions!
Privacy is truly a matter that should be of the highest concern for
everyone developing comprehensive digital literacy strategies. The
inclusion of privacy in the agendas of the high level debates around the
world should be encouraged, and by all means informed by all the
stakeholders involved. Some countries have done considerable efforts, as
the case of Canada and the European Union, others have neglected and even
evaded the straight discussion, as it seems the case of the US, who has
fail to provide solid frames both for education and regulation.
Our recently conformed group of researchers at the International Computer
Science Institute in Berkeley has come together in a truly
multidisciplinary work to provide technically and culturally informed
insights, to shape a comprehensive-educational strategy to reduce threads
on privacy and security over the Internet, guiding users to make informed
decisions regarding their online practices.
As our research is in its early phases, we would be glad to receive more of
your comments and recommendations in order to create value, so we can
hopefully make contact with the research community as soon as we will start
producing preliminary findings.

Best regards,

Gerardo S
