Cyber Security, Technology, and Privacy Regulation in the Digital Age
Sprache des Vortragstitels:
In the hyper-connected world of today a breach of security is a frequent occurrence and no longer there is such thing as an isolated security threat. Breaches in one organization or system can quickly spread to others and easily get out of hand. Thus far the balance between security and privacy issues has tilted toward security. The doctrine of "nothing to hide" is one of the primary arguments made when balancing privacy against security. In the past twenty years, however, information processing has moved from the backroom to the front end, operating in a real time interactive mode. This phenomenon together with a blast of online exposure in social media and new tools available to cross-reference and mine fragmented sources has changed the information privacy landscape, where privacy, security and identity thefts have become intertwined and an ongoing cause of anxiety.
