Data Security Conference

Location: Notre Dame Law School

Professor Mark McKenna will host a Data Security Conference at Notre Dame Law School on February 24, 2017.   

Modern technology enables the collection and use of many types of data for a wide range of purposes. Many of those uses are enormously beneficial. But the era of big data comes with substantial risks to privacy, particularly as data breaches proliferate. The conference will focus on legal and ethical issues in data security, with a particular focus on institutional design and regulatory strategy.
