This talk will engage the audience in a debate regarding the issue of privacy in the age of technology and innovation, especially post-9/11. Whether to a small gathering or an auditorium of several hundred people, Jami Floyd will engage the audience around the topics of information privacy and the new landscape of heightened security and the related emerging civil liberties issues.
During this talk, Floyd discusses issues ranging from the Patriot Act to the hacking of business computers by foreign actors, from the implementation of electronically readable forms of passports and personal identification cards to the implications of social media like Facebook (over 1 billion users per month) in which people digitally create aspects of their personality and make decisions about who to give access to their information.
It is the individual’s responsibility to protect him or herself against privacy invasion and to remain informed about current issues. We are in the midst of an extraordinary debate that will change society, as we struggle to control not only our personal information but also our digital identities. This talk is only the beginning.
