Reached for comment, Professor Lysyanskaya said, “I am delighted to join the advisory board of the Electronic Privacy Information Center.  With new and more complex threats to our privacy arising every day, technologists, lawyers and activists must work more closely than ever to restore a balance that favors the individual.”
