General Session - Digital Privacy and Cybersecurity: A 21st Century Journey or Illusion?
Time 10/29/14 10:30AM-12:00PM
Can technology ever be truly secure? Can laws protect us? Does digital privacy even matter? Could cyberwar cripple us with never a shot fired?
Join our panel of world-class experts as they debate what can and must be achieved through technological vigilance, policy, national and international law, and evolving personal behavior as we learn to live in an increasingly digital world. Former U.S. Congressman, Lee Hamilton, director of the Center on Congress at IU, Fred Cate, and Dell Chief (Security) Scientist, Carrie Gates, will take an in-depth look at how these factors interact to shape our world—and the role of the research and education community in making that world more secure.
Wednesday's Tech Talks
Avis Yates Rivers—Sit with Me Initiative (http://sitwithme.org/)
Sit With Me invites you to validate and recognize the important role women play in creating future technology by taking a small but symbolic action: sit in a red chair and share your story. Pull up a chair and listen to stories from others; men, women, technical and non-technical, as they sit in the red chair. Sit With Me was created by members of NCWIT with creative direction from marketing and branding firm BBMG.
