Express VPN Future of Privacy Scholarship
The ExpressVPN Future of Privacy Scholarship was created to raise awareness of internet privacy and security.

How to enter
Revelations over the past year have stoked concern over the power that technology companies wield globally. With net neutrality repealed in the United States, the General Data Protection Regulation taking force in Europe, and governments demanding backdoors into personal devices, one thing is certain: The battle over who controls the technology we use is far from over.
This year’s essay topic:
Technology companies can self-regulate to provide optimal privacy to internet users. The free market will choose the winners to be those companies that best protect their users, without the need for government interference. Do you agree or disagree?
Your essay should be 600 to 800 words long and submitted to firstname.lastname@example.org by August 31, 2019.
