The United States and Europe appear headed for a privacy showdown. The United States continues to promote self-regulation for Internet-based services while Europe is pursuing an update for its comprehensive privacy framework. Also, “Big Data” is raising new questions about Big Brother and how the personal data that is collected from mobile devices, cars and even home appliance will be used. As the Internet becomes prevalent in nearly all aspects of daily life, this panel will examine the path forward for online privacy, examining current and future legislation, and finding solutions that both protect the rights of users and promote innovation and growth.

The use of the Internet and technology in addressing problems faced by poor communities around the world is often regarded as having revolutionized the field of development work. It has opened access to new areas that before were difficult to reach, increased the flow of information between communities, and expanded the potential ways through which people can improve their lives and advance economically. Furthermore, the Internet has played a vital role in the shape of societies within the US and around the world, and in providing what an individual needs to succeed. It also allows us to address old problems in new and innovative ways. In this panel we will address some of these new innovations, the successes and failures of technology application to alleviate poverty, the potential that has been realized and the potential that is yet untouched, issues of infrastructure and how one introduces new technologies into remote areas, and possible complications that may be encountered in technology integration at home and throughout the world.

As we move further into the 21st century, the internet has a greater role in both our nation’s offensive military capabilities, as well as our national defense priorities. With recent headlines involving the “Stuxnet” computer virus, purported Chinese hacking attempts, and the prevalence of technology in U.S. military capabilities, the time has come to fully address the future of cyber-security policy. This panel will focus on our nation’s “zero-day” vulnerabilities and how they can be addressed; finding the balance between our defensive and offensive priorities, if the two can be separated at all; the public and private-sector relationships involved; and the international impact of our domestic cyber-security priorities.
