Societies have always been challenged by the need to provide security for their citizens in the face of other competing societal values. Cybersecurity is only the latest manifestation of this challenge because providing digital security often reveals private information about individuals that is irrelevant to the provision of their security. Modern society is facing a novel expression of this age old challenge. This workshop will address the tension between privacy and security in the modern cyber environment, explore corporate obligations that are or should be in place to protect individual privacy while providing security; and consider the personal responsibility in an age of social media.
