CNY Cybersecurity Connections:
Today's Challenges, Opportunities and Trends

Conversations surrounding information security and privacy are no longer restircted to technology professionals.  Business leaders and professionals in all sectors need to stay current with the rapidly shifiting cybersecurity lanscape.  But, staying ahead of these risks can be challenging.  

Join us as CNY Cybersecurity Connections brings leading cybersecurity experts to Central New York to discuss these and other security-related topics critical in today's business environment.  By attending you will have an unparalleded opportunity to learn from and engage with experts operating on the front lines of cybersecurity and digital privacy.

Lecture I: Bring Your Own Device - Law, Privacy, and Policy Implications

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.

Speaker:  Orin S. Kerr, JD
Professor Kerr is a nationally recognized scholar of criminal procedure and computer crime law. He has authored more than 50 articles, and his scholarship has been cited in over 150 judicial opinions and almost 2000 academic works.

Lecture II: Privacy:  Re-Framing what we think we know

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.
