  •  Privacy by Design: An Engineering Ethics Perspective

    Wednesday, Jan. 23, 2013 2:52 PM

     When an app or piece of software comes on the market, its introduction may be followed by concern over whether users' privacy can be adequately protected.  But a new approach to privacy protection is "privacy by design," where protections are "baked into" the product from its inception.

    At a panel discussion this evening, 7 p.m., in Lucas Hall on the Santa Clara University campus, three outstanding computer scientists will offer their perspectives on privacy by design and the role that engineering ethics plays in those efforts. Join us for a presentation by Ben Adida Director of Identity at Mozilla and technical advisor to Creative Commons Brian Kennish ex-Googler and co-founder of Disconnect Arvind Narayanan Assistant Professor at Princeton and affiliate scholar at Stanford’s Center for Internet and Society.
