What: This month, Privacy Lab will have a cyber security theme for National Cyber Security Awareness Month. Specifically looking at how privacy and security go hand in hand, and how they can work better together to protect consumer and user data.
We live in a connected world that continues to get more complicated. Traditionally, security and privacy have been separate disciplines, but with greater connectivity those lines are starting to intersect more often and with less clarity.
Keynote speaker, Ed Adams, will guide attendees through a look at connected cars as a case study. Then small groups will discuss how privacy and security can better work together to better address increasingly complicated products and technologies.
