A real-world, socio-technical look at privacy within the context of the Web, how web developers can ensure that the right policies are in place for maintaining control over concepts like confidentiality and integrity, what to look out for when accessing free wifis downtown or in airports, privacy related to social media, how non-secure information is via email, and just in general what to look out for or how to be safe when out in the web world.

ABOUT THE SPEAKER: Justin Troutman is a security and privacy researcher focusing on the socio-technical interfaces between humans and technology within the context of security and privacy. He’s rather evangelistic when it comes to preaching the wonders and woes of security and privacy, and has found many an interesting pulpit for doing so, in both print and speech, from analytical articles for Microsoft TechNet Magazine, to original research for IEEE Security & Privacy, to guest lecturing at Duke University. Justin, a native of the state, moved from Brazil to Asheville in 2008, where he lives with his wife and daughter.
