On Wednesday, February 8, the Strauss Center hosts Cara Bloom, Senior Cybersecurity and Privacy Scientist at MITRE, for a talk on “Emerging Technologies & Privacy: How Privacy Threat Modeling Can Help Manage Privacy Risks.” This talk will be held at the LBJ School of Public Affairs as part of the Strauss Center’s Brumley Speaker Series.

In her talk, Cara will discuss how preserving privacy is not only a regulatory requirement, but an ethical obligation, a mission enabler, and a market differentiator. Given this, privacy can still be an ephemeral concept, lacking a solid definition, scope, and practical method for management. She will discuss how it is of particular importance to understand the potential privacy risks of emerging technologies and how they can be difficult to emulate and model, particularly when there are few established privacy norms for the new technology. In her presentation, she will take a risk-oriented view of privacy, discussing the differences between risk management and compliance. She will conclude by looking forward to the emerging field of privacy threat modeling.

This event is free and open to the public. No RSVP required. Lunch will be served. For more information on this event, contact Brittany Horton at
