Security and Liberty Forum

Featuring: Katherine Bryant, Barry Steinhardt, Melissa Ngo, Gene Spafford, Annie Anton, and Bruce Schneier

The purpose of this event was to bring in experts from academia, business, and government–in the fields of security, data collection, data mining, and privacy–together in a forum where they may share with a local audience their perspectives, concerns, ideas, and sometimes competing interests. We hope to explore the fundamental ethical and practical concerns with regard to data collection, sharing, and retention within the private sector–and between the private sector and government–and to help shed light on important current events.

Please note that due to a technical problem, only part of the conference program is available as video here.
