Speaker: Dr Gus Hosein, LSE Information Systems and Innovation
Audience: SECReT students
Professor Gus Hosein, Deputy Director, Privacy International and visiting professor at LSE gave a tremendously popular presentation on how the notion of ‘privacy’ is being increasingly eroded in our globalised, always-on, Facebook world, and how this impacts on the provision of security.
He led a discussion on how valid ‘big brother’ fears are. SECReT students were drawn into a debate on the validity or otherwise of such instruments as Identity Cards and aggregated ‘super-databases’ with examples from different countries.
