The Nature and Challenges of Privacy in a Networked World

Gene Spafford - CERIAS

Feb 20, 1998


What exactly is privacy? How do we define it? How do we know when it has been violated? How do we protect it?

This pair of lectures explores the fundamental nature of privacy, its characteristics, and some of the threats against it posed by marketing and governmental databases, and by slow erosion of individual awareness.

Attendees are expected to provide comments and questions to help define the discussion.

Unless otherwise noted, the security seminar is held on Wednesdays at 4:30P.M. STEW G52 (Suite 050B), West Lafayette Campus. More information...
