Our Digital Selves: What Privacy Means Now

Tuesday, March 17
11:00AM - 12:00PM

Parkside Restaurant
301 E 6th St

With the enormous benefits that come from advances in technology that have transformed the way we live and work, come the consequences of living our lives through computer systems that can record our every move. In this digital era, how has our collective conception of “privacy” changed? How do emerging technologies impact corporate obligations concerning consumer information? And in that same vein, what standards and guidelines are necessary for agencies and government regulators to balance issues of national security with individual privacy? In the rise of the internet of things and connected devices, who can collect my personal data and what should they be allowed to use it for? Our panel will discuss all these questions and many more as they explore the boundaries of privacy and security in the 21st century.
Presented by Glen Echo Group
