Security in the Digital Age

The online world is no longer an isolated part of life. We work there, play there, bank there, find companionship there—and where we go others follow. They want to keep us safe by watching us, or steal our money, or sell us things we need and things we don’t. How do we balance privacy with security in this new digital world plagued by the same old human characteristics?

Join the Phi Beta Kappa Association of the Chicago Area to discuss this question with two expert Phi Beta Kappans. Fred Cate is a distinguished law professor at Indiana University widely known for his knowledge of and advice about digital privacy and security. He has given presentations on the topic internationally, is on an advisory committee for the Department of Homeland Security, and is a past president of the ΦBK Senate. Bob Sloan heads the Computer Science Department at UIC. In addition to his research in artificial intelligence, he has co-taught classes in computing law, policy, and ethics for students in both law and computer science, and his writings include co-authorship of a recent book that proposes solutions to the privacy and security issues we wrestle with.
