Modern field guide to security and privacy

Watch: Cybersecurity meets privacy in a connected world

Join Privacy Lab and Passcode on Thursday, October 20th at 6:15 p.m. PDT for a discussion that will look at how privacy and security go hand in hand.

[Editor's Note: We are experiencing technical difficulties with the livestream.]

We live in a connected world that continues to get more complicated. Traditionally, security and privacy have been separate disciplines, but with greater connectivity those lines are starting to intersect more often and with less clarity. 

For this Privacy Lab event, Ed Adams, CEO of Security Innovation, will use connected cars as a case study to explore how privacy and security go hand in hand.

By 2017, all new cars will carry Vehicle-to-Vehicle (V2V) equipment and will broadcast speed and location to sense hazards alert the driver. These new features are designed to save lives but the benefits carry serious concerns about safety and privacy. Ed will explore these issues and discuss how security and privacy can work better together to protect consumer and user data.

After the talk, audience members will have an opportunity discuss about how privacy and security can better work together to better address increasingly complicated products and technologies.

Dear Reader,

About a year ago, I happened upon this statement about the Monitor in the Harvard Business Review – under the charming heading of “do things that don’t interest you”:

“Many things that end up” being meaningful, writes social scientist Joseph Grenny, “have come from conference workshops, articles, or online videos that began as a chore and ended with an insight. My work in Kenya, for example, was heavily influenced by a Christian Science Monitor article I had forced myself to read 10 years earlier. Sometimes, we call things ‘boring’ simply because they lie outside the box we are currently in.”

If you were to come up with a punchline to a joke about the Monitor, that would probably be it. We’re seen as being global, fair, insightful, and perhaps a bit too earnest. We’re the bran muffin of journalism.

But you know what? We change lives. And I’m going to argue that we change lives precisely because we force open that too-small box that most human beings think they live in.

The Monitor is a peculiar little publication that’s hard for the world to figure out. We’re run by a church, but we’re not only for church members and we’re not about converting people. We’re known as being fair even as the world becomes as polarized as at any time since the newspaper’s founding in 1908.

We have a mission beyond circulation, we want to bridge divides. We’re about kicking down the door of thought everywhere and saying, “You are bigger and more capable than you realize. And we can prove it.”

If you’re looking for bran muffin journalism, you can subscribe to the Monitor for $15. You’ll get the Monitor Weekly magazine, the Monitor Daily email, and unlimited access to
