Keynote speaker, Edward Felten, Chief Technologist with the Federal Trade Commission and on leave from Princeton University, discussed why cybercrime losses continue to rise and what government can do to help address the issues.

Chris Hoofnagle, director of the Berkeley Center for Law & Technology's information privacy programs, discussed key privacy terms and the shortcomings in enabling consumers to “negotiate their privacy preferences.” 10/13/2011
