Video: Security and Privacy in a Hyper-Connected World

  • Data & Society Research Institute
  • December 14, 2016

We have created a world where information technology permeates our economies, social interactions, and intimate selves. The combination of mobile, cloud computing, the Internet Things, persistent computing, and autonomy is resulting in something altogether different—a world-sized web. This World-Sized Web promises great benefits, but it is also vulnerable to a host of new threats from users, criminals, corporations, and governments. These threats can now result in physical damage and even death.

In this talk, Bruce Schneier takes a retrospective look back at what we have learned from past attempts to secure these systems. He also pushes us forward to consider seriously what technologies, laws, regulations, economic incentives, and social norms we will need to secure them in the future…

Video: Why We Should Reform Surveillance Policies

  • WGBH Forum Network
  • March 4, 2016

You are under surveillance right now.

Your cell phone provider tracks your location and knows who’s with you. Your online and in-store purchasing patterns are recorded, and reveal if you’re unemployed, sick, or pregnant. Your e-mails and texts expose your intimate and casual friends. Google knows what you’re thinking because it saves your private searches. Facebook can determine your sexual orientation without you ever mentioning it.

The powers that surveil us do more than simply store this information. Corporations use surveillance to manipulate not only the news articles and advertisements we each see, but also the prices we’re offered. Governments use surveillance to discriminate, censor, chill free speech, and put people in danger worldwide. And both sides share this information with each other or, even worse, lose it to cybercriminals in huge data breaches…
