Event description

Description

Date: 5/30 6-8pm at The Blum Center at UC Berkeley.


Description: The May iteration of Privacy Lab will be a privacy author round-table hosted by the Interdisciplinary Research Group on Privacy at Berkeley (IRGP). The event will bring together prominent authors of privacy books who will discuss their work and privacy more generally. For the first time, Privacy Lab will be coordinated with the annual Privacy Law Scholars Conference (PLSC). The PLSC 2019, organized jointly by Berkeley Center For Law & Technology and the George Washington University Law School, assembles a wide array of privacy law scholars and practitioners from around the world to discuss current issues and foster greater connections between academia and practice. The PLSC brings together privacy law scholars, privacy scholars from other disciplines (economics, philosophy, political science, computer science), and practitioners (industry, legal, advocacy, and government).

Naniette H. Coleman is a PhD candidate in the Sociology Department at UC Berkeley. Her work sits at the intersection of the sociology of culture and organizations and focuses on cybersecurity, surveillance, and privacy in the US context. She examines how individuals think about and respond to challenges to their personal privacy, and also how organizations assess risk, make decisions, and respond to data breaches, and organizational compliance with state, federal, and international privacy laws. Naniette holds a Master of Public Administration with a specialization in Democracy, Politics, and Institutions from the Harvard Kennedy School of Government, and both an M.A. in Economics and a B.A. in Communication from the University at Buffalo, SUNY. A non-traditional student, Naniette’s prior professional experience includes local, state, and federal service, as well as two international organizations, and two universities.
