Michael Chertoff: Cyber Security in the Digital Age

SEE EVENT DETAILS
Michael Chertoff, U.S. Secretary of Homeland Security (2005-2009);  Author, Exploding Data: Reclaiming Our Cyber Security in the Digital AgeIn Conversation with the Honorable Ellen Tauscher, Former Representative, California’s 10th Congressional District; Former Undersecretary of State for Arms Control and International Security; Member, Commonwealth Club Board of Governors
The Internet has drastically transformed our lives—it permeates every corner of our society and is only growing more influential. The pervasive exposure of our personal information has made us more vulnerable than ever. Former Secretary of Homeland Security Michael Chertoff argues that nothing undermines our freedom more than losing control of information about ourselves. He believes our laws must also join the Information Age, and that technology can be used as the ultimate protection of our freedoms.
From 2005 to 2009, Chertoff served as the second U.S. secretary of homeland security, leading efforts to stop terrorism inside American borders. Now, he has shifted his security focus to the cyber front. Chertoff argues that it’s not just a simple loss of privacy that is at stake but our ability to make personal choices without fear of coercion.
Join us for a conversation about cyber issues plaguing our world, and how governments, companies and individuals must work together to protect our personal data in the Information Age.
