About the Author

Alan Westin (1929-2013) was a Professor of Public Law & Government Emeritus, Columbia University, former publisher of Privacy & American Business, and former President of the Center for Social & Legal Research. Westin's research in the 1960s is widely seen as the first significant work on the problem of consumer privacy and data protection. Westin defined privacy as an individual’s right “to control, edit, manage, and delete information about them[selves] and decide when, how, and to what extent information is communicated to others.” Westin’s major books on privacy, Privacy and Freedom (1967) and Databanks in a Free Society (1972, were pioneering works that prompted U.S. privacy legislation and helped launch global privacy movements in many democratic nations in the 1960s and 70s.
