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.

Lecture II: Privacy: Re-Framing what we think we
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-framing our own
definitions to the changing landscape.
