A Data Studio Presents Event
11 a.m. to 12 p.m. Thursday, April 7, in Kennedy Library, Room 111H
Zachary Peterson, Cal Poly assistant professor of computer science and a faculty member of the university’s Cybersecurity Center, will present “Cyber CSI II: Apple vs. FBI – Encryption, Privacy, and Policy.”
Peterson will discuss the case between Apple and the FBI, the implications of encrypting data on mobile devices, and the challenges of maintaining data privacy in the digital age. He will also examine the implications of the high-profile case for both government policies and the private sector.
Peterson earned a B.S. in Computer Engineering and M.S. in Computer Science at UC Santa Cruz, and a Ph.D. in Computer Science at The Johns Hopkins University. This spring he was selected to be a Fulbright Scholar at University College London, continuing some of his ongoing research in the use of games and play for teaching computer security concepts to younger and non-technical audiences.
This event is free and open to the public. Light refreshments will be provided.
