Privacy is becoming an ever-increasing concern in our world today. Social Networks today are
now focusing on users’ privacy given the inherent security risks posed by organizations’ access to personally identifiable information. The European Union has enacted GDPR valuing privacy whereas, on the opposite end of the spectrum, China has implemented a Social Credit System. What role do reputational systems play in our society? How do we design security controls for information systems balancing user’s rights to their personal information? Where’s the boundary of security and privacy?

Come to our session to hear a distinguished panel of speakers discuss this topic in detail.
