CSUMB's 10th annual Ethics Forum will explore issues of data mining and digital privacy. This forum takes a look at the digital trail each of us leave behind whenever we click on a website, pay with a credit card, etc. and who is paying attention to that trail. Not just the government, but also business powerhouses such as Google, Target, and Facebook. The forum will also ask the question: As our culture becomes more and more digital, "is it possible for individuals to retain any sense of privacy?" The panelists presenting these issues will include senior staff attorney with the Electronic Frontier Foundation Lee Tien, Alec Arago, from the office of Congressman Sam Farr, former employee of the Defence Manpower Data Center William Boogess, Adam Swindler of Google, and University of California information security officer Cheryl Washington. Directions can be found at csumb.edu/map.
