*PHILOSOPHY AND TECHNOLOGY, Springer, Editor-in-Chief: Luciano Floridi*
*Call for Papers for a Special Issue on "**The Ethical and Legal Aspects of
Digital Security"*
GUEST EDITORS: Pompeu Casanovas and Ugo Pagallo
Security is one of the main issues of contemporary societies, and so are
transparency and the preservation of civil rights. New trends in the field
of governance —such as Privacy Impact Assessment methodology and Data
Protection by Design— require a more careful analysis of the social
knowledge and ethical aspects implied in the enactment of soft law,
principles, rules and best practices, as recently highlighted by the
drafting of new European regulations. Recent political turmoils fuel this
intellectual need. Ethical and legal challenges of the balance between
security (e.g. procedures, content and boundaries of police
interoperability) and data protection (as defined e.g. by legal provisions
and enacted by national agencies) will be faced in this Special issue.
