We've all become accustomed to our most private data bouncing around the ubiquitous "cloud" while granting companies the right to profit from our personal photos, videos, and stories in exchange for access to their platforms.
Our increasing willingness to upload our lives has far outpaced any conversation over privacy, security, liability, property rights, and ethics. How should we think about these revolutionary platforms that have connected us to the world and one another? What should we do to keep ourselves safe while still benefitting from the incredible advancements that these technologies offer us?
Join Seattle University's Computer Science Department Chair, Roshanak Roshandel, and FBI Special Agent and cyber crimes investigator, Joel Martini, as they explore the security and ethics of these transformative technologies.
With hundreds of members representing tens of thousands of employees, we're the region's relationship, policy, and business development hub.
