Data Privacy: Who owns Your Personal Data?
Data Privacy is daily news—Equifax, Capital One, etc.—but what are we actually talking about? As individuals, we have rights over our physical property but much less say over ownership of our personal information. As we consider the efforts of other countries to protect their citizens’ personal information and the efforts of some States to create private rights of action regarding personal information, we have to ask ourselves how we got here.
Our government has clear rules about protecting our individual data from government interference, but few rules exist for corporations processing our personal data, both internally and externally. And with and without our consent. Rules have evolved to protect our money and health records, but not the details that define our lives, for example, our credit histories. Corporations are selling our information to one another to make money off us in ways we cannot imagine, could not foresee, and are seemingly outside of our government’s control. Moving most of our daily lives online and into the cloud has had effects we could not have predicted or imagined. Where do we go from here?

InfoSec is Accelerating
Several high quality, open, and vendor neutral efforts are producing knowledge bases, tools, and online communities that are advancing the amount of generally available information security expertise available to defenders. They also create an avenue for accelerated "learning by doing" for those who participate and contribute. Learn what's out there and how to take steps towards participating and contributing to these projects. This presentation builds on a call to action shared by John Lambert in his December 2019 article, "The Githubification of Infosec" ( https://medium.com/@johnlatwc/the-githubification-of-infosec-afbdbfaad1d1.
