Session Abstract:

What’s not to love about all those smart, cool, and connected “things” we parade around with these days? Admit it: it can be liberating, fascinating, and fun especially for the data aficionados who are on a never-ending quest to discover the latest breaking insights. But what happens when these cool things get hacked and/or our personal information is stolen or shared without our permission and/or the government wants more access all in the name of national/global security? In this era of the Internet of Things, we can no longer relegate this discussion to the privacy freaks and security geeks in the back room. It’s one in which we all need to participate.
