Security and Privacy Sessions at SXSW 2017
Given our current challenges with separating real news from so-called fake news (as well as a President-elect who consistently blurs the lines between these two opposites), Journalism may be the most important track at SXSW 2017. But, in light of so many high-profile hacks over the last six months, we also expect sessions covering security and privacy to be very popular.
Many of these security and privacy sessions will occur as part of the Government track which runs March 10–13 at the Downtown Austin Hilton. These sessions include:
- Are Biometrics the New Face of Surveillance?
- Cyber Arms Control: How To Make Our World Safer!
- DoD, Silicon Valley, Hollywood: Hacking for Defense
- Dude, Where’s My Data? Privacy and Consumer Rights
- Get a Warrant: The 4th Amendment and Digital Data
- The Threat is Evolving: Are You? Meet Up
- When Should My Data Become the Government’s Data?
- A New Normal: User Security in an Insecure World
- Back to the Future: Securing Marty McFly’s World
- Connected Cities, Hackable Streets
- How To Hijack the Pizza Delivery Drone
- Rating the IoT: How Do We Test Consumer Privacy?
- Your “Check Security” Light is On
- Zero Day Software Vulnerabilities: Deal With It
