Imagine a world where groceries, medications, and supplies are delivered to your doorstep by drones. Road traffic is reduced by self-flying drones taking people to and from work. Police cars are replaced by drone surveillance and security. Is this within our near future?

It might be. But before we can explore the possibility of autonomous flying taxis, experts have to puzzle out the privacy and security implications of such a world. With devices that can instantly identify cell phone data, VINs, and even the types of fluids at crime scenes, how are you going to keep private information from getting into the wrong hands? And, on the flip side, how can you use this data to make the world a better place?

In this episode of the She Said Privacy/He Said Security podcast, hosts Jodi and Justin Daniels are joined by Tom Walker, the Founder and CEO of DroneUp, to discuss how he makes privacy a top priority for drone usage. Tom talks about the best practices for data collection, the types of information a drone can uncover, and why setting a privacy and security standard is important for the future of the drone industry.
