The EFF represents the best of an empowered democracy, said Michelle Dennedy, chief privacy officer at Intel Security.
"They take on thorny issues like free speech, surveillance and privacy," she said. "They act for the many where the single person may not have the depth or expertise, the voice or the financial independence to act. In an information society, someone must stand at the ready, to ring a clarion call for justice. Thank you, EFF."
