Robert O’Harrow, Jr., author of “No Place To Hide: Behind the Scenes of Our Emerging Surveillance Society”, will be among the speakers at the 2005 Computer Security Symposium set for Oct. 12 at the University of North Carolina Charlotte.
O’Harrow, a reporter for The Washington Post, will discuss personal privacy at 8:30 AM.
“When you go to work, stop at the store, fly in a plane, or surf the Web, you are being watched,” O’Harrow wrote in his book. “They know where you live, the value of your home, the names of your friends and family, in some cases even what you read.”
O’Harrow was a Pulitzer Prize finalist for articles on privacy and technology. He also received the 2003 Carnegie Mellon Cyber Security Reporting Award.
The conference is being put on by the Information Technology Charlotte (ITC) council, The College of Information Technology at UNC Charlotte, the North Carolina Technology Association, InfraGard, and The Charlotte Research Institute
