Press Release (ePRNews.com) - PALM BEACH GARDENS, Fla. - May 02, 2017 - Campus Technology Conference, a higher education technology event produced by LRP Conferences, LLC, an affiliate of LRP Publications, announced Dr. Jennifer Golbeck will present the Opening Keynote: Privacy and Security in the Age of Algorithmic Spies, on Tuesday, July 17, 2017, at McCormick Place in Chicago. Golbeck, an expert in cybersecurity and human-centered design, will discuss the risks organizations face when humans are not the center of their security plans, as well as the steps needed to make systems safer and accessible.
It is commonly believed a crucial problem in privacy and cybersecurity is people behaving insecurely, but Dr. Golbeck, a world-renowned computer scientist, and pioneer in social data analytics has an opposing standpoint. Dr. Golbeck believes security systems designed without the user in mind increases risks. At the Campus Technology Conference, she will share simple steps higher education professionals can use to make security systems more secure and user-friendly, resulting in lowering risk and improving people’s privacy.
“As phishing and other cyber risks continue to increase in sophistication, cybersecurity and data privacy have become essential concerns for chief information officers, security officers, and campus leaders nationwide,” said John Hess, Campus Technology Program Chair. “I am delighted that Jennifer Golbeck will address the Campus Technology Conference audience on these issues because her research focuses in unique ways on the interactions between humans and technology and the intersection between essential issues of information security and issues of information access that remain central to research, learning, and social engagement.”
A world leader in social media research and science communication, Dr. Golbeck has published more than 100 academic articles and books on social networks and the web. Her research has influenced the government and military. She is a guest host of The Kojo Nnamdi Show on Washington DC’s NPR affiliate WAMU, and is a regular contributor to Slate.
In addition to Dr. Golbeck’s Opening Keynote, Campus Technology will include seven thought-provoking workshops and more than 35 sessions, including Making Meaningful Apps in Higher Education, Terraforming the Academic Terrain, Transforming an IT Service Delivery Organization and more!
