Using Data from Ranking Digital Rights to Make Your Case
On May 5, Ranking Digital Rights will be available to talk about its 2022 Big Tech Scorecard. The Scorecard evaluates and ranks 14 of the world’s most powerful digital platforms on their commitments to respect users’ fundamental rights, and on the mechanisms they have in place to ensure those promises are kept. We've analyzed hundreds of thousands of data points to come to our conclusions. And all that data is freely available for exploration.
You can use this data in your reports and your activism. RDR will show you how to do so. Leandro Ucciferri will give some tips on how to use RDR's Data Explorer to answer questions you might have. Here's a link to our scorecard and reports. (The 2022 Big Tech Scorecard launches at the end of April).
- Leandro Ucciferri is the Global Partnerships Manager at Ranking Digital Rights. He is a lawyer specializing in technology policy and regulation about the right to privacy, data protection, and cybersecurity. Full bio here.
- Zak Rogoff is a Research Manager at Ranking Digital Rights. He works for an internet that truly serves the interests of everyone, and he believes the human rights framework is the best way to get there. Before joining RDR, Zak organized against internet shutdowns with a global coalition at Access No. He also led campaigns at the Free Software Foundation and worked to rein in government surveillance at U.S.-based Fight for the Future and the Chilean NGO Derechos Digitales.
