12:05PM to 1:30PM

SLB Room 122

Remediating sophisticated, transnational cybersecurity incidents requires a combination of technical, operational, organizational, and legal capabilities distributed amongst an equally diverse set of state and non-state (private) actors.  Existing, successful instances of such remediation efforts---referred to as combined capabilities---are based on a seemingly uncommon alignment of norms, goals, and values between state and non-state actors.

12:05PM to 1:30PM

SLB Room 122

Richard Miller's book, On the End of Privacy: Dissolving Boundaries in a Screen-Centric World (UPitt, March 2019), focuses on the events leading up to the suicide of Tyler Clementi and the trial that followed, where Clementi’s roommate was charged with a series of hate crimes for having used his webcam to spy on Clementi kissing another man. With access to the text messages, tweets, and chatroom posts of those directly involved in this tragedy, Miller asks: why did no one intervene to stop the spying?
