Cyber Crime. Discussion w/ SEN Gillibrand, Helen Nissenbaum (1/23)

The Institute for Public Knowledge at NYU and the The Citizens Crime Commission of New York City are hosting a public discussion on Cyber Crime. The event will take place on Jan 23, 2012, from 8:00 AM - 10:00 AM in the Kimmel Center, at 60 Washington Square South, in the Eisner & Lubin Auditorium, 4th Floor.

Cyber crime is a growing concern for law enforcement, corporations, and individuals costing billions per year. Each data breach costs American businesses an average of $6.6 million, and every hour, the FBI processes 35 cases through the Internet Crime Complaint Center (IC3). The panel will address the policy and law enforcement challenges from a broad perspective, as well as the unique issues facing social media sites and users.

This discussion will feature:

-Senator Kirsten Gillibrand (NY)
-Associate General Counsel of Facebook, Chris Sonderby
-FBI Special Agent in Charge of the Cyber/Special Operations Division, Mary Galligan
-Senior Faculty Fellow at the Information Law Institute and NYU Media, Culture, and Communication Professor, Helen Nissenbaum

NYU President John Sexton will introduce the speakers, and Crime
Commission Director Richard Aborn will moderate the discussion.
