The Intimacy of Things: Privacy and the Internet of Things

Seminar | March 7 | 1-2 p.m. | 205 South Hall

 Dr. Gilad Rosner, Internet of Things Privacy Forum

 Center for Long-Term Cybersecurity (CLTC)

As part of its Spring 2017 Lunch Seminar Series, the Center for Long-Term Cybersecurity presents Gilad Rosner, founder of the Internet of Things Privacy Forum.

Popular discourse would have us believe that the IoT is the greatest boon to humanity since electricity, or the greatest threat to privacy and democracy ever imagined. Unsurprisingly, it is neither; the IoT is evolution, not revolution. This talk will explore various conceptions of the IoT, examine the privacy risks it implies, review relevant policy frameworks, and try to deflate some of the hype and alarmism the subject tends to engender.

A researcher, consultant and government advisor focused on privacy and public policy, Gilad Rosner works on important emerging issues like privacy by design, national policy, digital identity, and the interplay between governments, commercial markets and standards.

Dr. Rosner is motivated by the responsible use of personal data and its use in new business and technology domains, particularly in an international context. He has 20 years of industry experience in IT and digital media; has worked with automation, robotics, audiovisual encoding, front- and back-office IT, supply chains and operations; and held management and consultant roles. Prior to becoming a researcher, he helped design and manufacture the Emmy award-winning robotic video migration system, SAMMA.

Light lunch will be provided. Please RSVP to attend this event.
