Scientists in Synagogues: Does Privacy Matter?

 Registration is closed for this event

What is privacy? Is it the right to be let alone? The right to control the distribution of information about yourself? And is it possible to have privacy in a society that has ubiquitous public and private collection of information? What would such privacy mean?

Join us for a talk by Professor Susan Landau of Tufts University, followed by a panel discussion and Q&A with some of our congregants from the tech industry.

Susan Landau is Bridge Professor of Cyber Security and Policy at the Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy and the School of Engineering, Department of Computer Science, Tufts University. Landau's new book, Listening In: Cybersecurity in an Insecure Age, was just published by Yale University Press; she is also the author of Surveillance or Security? The Risks Posed by New Wiretapping Technologies (MIT Press) and co-author, with Whitfield Diffie, of Privacy on the Line: The Politics of Wiretapping and Encryption (MIT Press).

Landau has testified before Congress, has written for the Washington Post, Science, and Scientific American, and frequently appears on NPR and BBC. Landau has been a senior staff Privacy Analyst at Google, a Distinguished Engineer at Sun Microsystems, and a faculty member at Worcester Polytechnic Institute, the University of Massachusetts Amherst, and Wesleyan University. She was inducted into the Cybersecurity Hall of Fame in 2015, was a 2012 Guggenheim fellow and a 2010–2011 fellow at the Radcliffe Institute for Advanced Study, and received the 2008 Women of Vision Social Impact Award. She is a fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science and the Association for Computing Machinery.
