Data is the exhaust of the information age. When we carry our cell phone, use apps on those phones, browse websites, send emails or texts, drive in our cars, or make purchases with a credit card, we send digital information about where we are, our associations, our interests, and our desires and needs to the corporations that serve us and the governments that monitor us. Because the information is digitized, it is relatively cheap to store, and can be analyzed by computers in great detail.

Join Harvard Berkman Fellow and renowned security technologist Bruce Schneier for a master seminar at Harvard’s Institute for Applied Computational Science on the corporate and government surveillance enabled by the vast amount of digital data available, the tension between privacy and security and the implications for government policy and reform, along with a discussion of the technological and mathematical solutions for reform.

This event is hosted by Harvard University as part of #HUBweek.
