LAS/H&SS SEMINAR: Privacy Incidents, News and News About Incidents

Privacy Incidents, News and News About Incidents

Abstract – With the exception of data breaches, there are no publicly accessible databases of privacy incidents. This leaves many incidents of accidental data collection, cyberbullying, social media over-sharing, re-identification, etc., undocumented in any centralized way, making analysis of trends difficult. In this talk, I’ll present a database of privacy incidents we’re building at NCSU in collaboration with UNCC and Clemson. Currently the database is mostly fueled by privacy news and this talk will also include a descriptive, large-scale analysis of privacy news including sentiment, entities and keywords. This analysis both helps build the content of the database and informs the trends and attributes tracked.

Jessica is an Associate Professor of Computer Science and Director of Privacy at NC State. Previously she was a research scientist and manager at Google, an area manager at Xerox PARC, and a research scientist at Bell Labs and RSA Labs. Jessica holds a PhD in Mathematics from U.C. Berkeley.
