Privacy in a Globally Connected Digital Age

Oct 24, 2013

We are living at a time when a simple Tweet or online posting can make you a celebrity overnight. Or, change your life for the worse, as when a University of Iowa teaching assistant accidentally emailed her students her own nude photos, instead of a classroom assignment.

This is also a time when private companies like Google and Facebook know more about a U.S. citizen than their own government. Today on River To River - a discussion of privacy-related news. We touch on everything from Google Glass to the international response to NSA surveillance methods.

Host Ben Kieffer is joined by panelists: Ben Stone, Executive Director of Iowa ACLU, Brian Mennecke, Associate Professor and researcher in management information systems at Iowa State University, and Doug Jacobson, Director of the Information Assurance Center at Iowa State University.
