Modern technology enables the collection and use of many types of data for a wide range of purposes. Many of those uses are enormously beneficial. But the era of big data comes with substantial risks to privacy, particularly as data breaches proliferate.

Sound data security policy requires more than technological fixes; it requires well-designed law and policy. Unfortunately, the law of data security is nascent and scattered. This conference will focus on legal and ethical issues in data security, with a particular focus on institutional design and regulatory strategy.

Conference contributors: There is no official registration for the conference and everyone is welcome at any time. Those of you who would like either a nametag or lunch should click here to send an e-mail to Jessica Baron with your name and the affiliation you'd like printed on the tag.
