May Privacy Lab - Privacy for Safety

Privacy for Targeted Populations explores where and why so many apps and tech products fail in protecting privacy for end users from targeted groups. As we often fail to see what is not relevant to ourselves, our speaker will use affairs/cheating (think Ashley Madison) as a relatable and humorous context. She will examine how societal 'normalized" behavior and bias affects design, development and incident response, exploring why this happens and how we can improve. While it is a big problem, the solutions are actually very simple and effective.
