Johns Hopkins is hosting the second Senior Executive Cybersecurity Conference on Sept. 10.
The daylong event, which is being held at Charles Commons on the university’s Homewood Campus, will look at “The Quandary of Information Sharing and Data Privacy.”
“Should private businesses be required to share their digital records with the government to help prevent data breaches? How can we be sure the government won’t misuse or mishandle this data? This conference is designed to explore questions like these,” said Anton Dahbura, executive director of Johns Hopkins’ Information Security Institute in a statement.
Among the speakers is Ari Schwartz, the National Security Council’s Director of Cybersecurity, who will look at privacy and civil liberties. Journalist Hodding Carter III will explore questions around ownership of data during a separate session.
