Digital Footprints: Managing Privacy and Security
Software Engineering Institute
With the recent Cambridge Analytica news and the rollout of the General Data Privacy Rule (GDPR) in Europe, there are many questions about how social media data privacy is managed and how it could be managed. The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) currently enforces rules for how companies communicate with users about how what data is collected, and how it is used. Following hearings in April about social network data privacy, legislators are considering expanding FTC’s authority to give users more information and choices about how data is collected and with whom it is shared.
Watch this second webcast, in a two-part series, as we discuss the situation, challenges related to enacting data- and privacy-related policy, and share their expertise on the implications of technology for privacy-related policy. Part 1 (https://resources.sei.cmu.edu/library/asset-view.cfm?assetid=524029) described what metadata is and what information can be gleaned from it.
