CNY Cybersecurity Connections Announces Agenda for April 15th Event: Fraud, Privacy, and Bring Your Own Devices

Join Dr. Marcus Rogers (McDevitt Chair in Computer Science at Le Moyne College), The McDevitt Center, Infragard, and CNYIIA for this exciting and very informative symposium.

9:00 am: Bring Your Own Device – Law, Privacy, and Policy Implications
Speaker: Orin S. Kerr, JD

Businesses often want to monitor their employees as they use computers at work. But what happens when companies allow employees to use their own cell phones and computers for company business? What rights do employers have to access, monitor, and control the contents of employee-owned computers? This lecture will cover the legal rules governing “bring your own device” policies. It will address the different laws that may apply, the privacy implications at stake, and the best practices for employers to avoid liability and litigation.

10:45 am: Privacy: Re-Framing What We Think We Know
Speaker: Kelley Misata

Sometimes our greatest lessons come from when the frame of what we believed to be true is spun around and flipped upside down. The conversations among security professionals, policy makers and others about what privacy means has seen some dramatic shifts in the past year; raising far more questions then answers. To complicate things, when asking general users what privacy means, often the response is a recount of scary stories of data breaches, surveillance, and face-less hacker communities. As this unique journey into information security and time as a member of the Tor Project will illustrate – privacy is not a point fixed in time, but a constantly evolving parade of questions we, as security professionals, need to stay in tune and continue to re-frame our own definitions to the changing landscape.

12:15-1:45: Lunch (provided)/Meet and Greet

1:45 pm Panel Discussion
Facilitator: Marc Rogers, Ph.D.
Panelists: Shawn O’Reilly, Lena Smart, Laurie Venditti, Orin S. Kerr, and Kelley Misata

By bringing together industry and academic experts in privacy, fraud, and the challenges to our growing dependencies on technology – our esteemed panel will explore today’s current landscape and provide insights on the consequences, potential issues, and where enterprises and individuals need to focus going forward.
