George Watts Hill Alumni Center, University of North Carolina

Internet_of_thingsOn February 19, the Center will be joining with the North Carolina Journal of Law & Technology to present a symposium entitled “Privacy of the Home and the Internet of Things.”  The “Internet of Things” is quickly taking shape as devices increasingly are equipped to collect information from their environment and send that information to a remote location for analysis, aggregation, and other responses. The privacy implications are significant, especially when devices are used within or specifically for the home, a place traditionally afforded heightened privacy protections. Experts in privacy and data security law will address the implications of the Internet of Things on the privacy, including constitutional issues, issues of notice and choice under consumer protection law, and other areas of law.

The Symposium Keynote speaker will be Mary Ellen Callahan, Partner Jenner & Block, Founder and Chair of Jenner & Block’s Privacy and Information Governance practice group.  The panelists and moderators include:

  • Christopher J. Ayers, Executive Director of the North Carolina Utilities Commission Public Staff
  • Paula Bruening, Senior Counsel, Global Privacy Policy, Intel
  • Tom Callahan, President, Sawyers Control Systems
  • Mary Culnan, Professor Emeritus at Bentley University and Senior Fellow & President, Board of Directors, Future of Privacy Forum
  • Woodrow Hartzog, Associate Professor at Samford University’s Cumberland School of Law
  • David Hoffman, Director of Security Policy & Global Privacy Officer, Intel
  • Joseph Kennedy, Professor of Law, UNC-Chapel Hill
  • Anne Klinefelter, Associate Professor of Law, UNC-Chapel Hill
  • Stephanie Pell, Assistant Professor and Cyber Ethics Fellow at West Point’s Army Cyber Institute (ACI)
