Main Topic Privacy Take Action

Getting Better with Application Privacy

Apparently a social media site got hacked recently, or perhaps an employee put some of their unencrypted date on a public server. I won’t go into the details, but I am sure you can find it on the web.

With that in mind, I will share an application privacy workshop I gave to Code for Boston in May 2019. Securing web sites is hard especially when you have other people’s private or sensitive data. In the talk I lay out steps web programers, designers and quality assurance folk can do to better secure their websites sites.

A video of the talk is on YouTube:

and Facebook:

I posted the slide deck as a PDF. Feel free to offer suggestions in the comments below.

Be well and stay safe.

    Public spaces are full of cameras that monitor the movement of people and vehicles, track faces, and combine this information without considering the potential for the erosion of privacy. Evidence demonstrates that the presence of such systems has little effect on the rate of crime and that, at best, crime simply shifts to other spaces. Pirates support and would prioritize the movement of police personnel from monitoring duties, to patrolling the streets. Pirates are against individuals being required to identify themselves if they are not suspected of committing a crime, especially when they are exercising their rights to protest or assemble.
