Ever since the Digital Revolution, new technology and digital networks have provided us with increasing levels of convenience. But when digital advancements occur faster than our ability to keep up with the complex changes, we face serious threats to our security and privacy.

As digital networks allow us to control devices in our home from miles away, or hail a ride with a click of a button, personal, corporate and government systems using the same networks are all vulnerable. Protecting user data and maintaining the security of our digital networks are crucial in the fight to protect our privacy in this age of rapid technological development.

Join Susan Landau, cybersecurity expert, former privacy analyst, and author of Listening In: Cybersecurity in an Insecure Age as she leads a discussion on the need to secure our data as we navigate the complexities of a rapidly changing digital world, including her latest thoughts on the encryption debate.
