Abstract

This Article expands the concept of resilience into the software and digital contracting ecosystem. It argues that technology law and policy can be tooled in part to adopt an explicit focus on building users’ resilience and sense of self-efficacy, particularly in connection with data privacy and information security. With the assistance of strengthened fair trade practices in privacy, contract law offers one avenue for explicit trust-reinforcing mechanisms to assist consumers in becoming more resilient users.

Keywords: privacy, information security, contract, software, internet, technology, fair trade practices
