Privacy in the Internet era

On 28 January 2013, the 7th European Data Protection Day, entitled “Do I really have nothing to hide?”, will be held by the IT Crowd Club Liechtenstein and the Institute of Information Systems. The main speaker is Professor Kurt Imhof from the Institute of Sociology at the University of Zurich.

In recent years, the European Data Protection Day has been used as an opportunity to discuss issues such as social networks, search engines on the Internet, mobile devices and online advertising. This year, a less technical approach has been chosen. It is all about higher-level issues within our society. Have clueless Facebook users changed society? Do we have nothing to hide any more? Does this (also) apply to the economy and the state? Is our society becoming more transparent? Or are we simply overwhelmed by our modern information society? Do we know where we are leaving traces behind us? What should we do when faced with a choice between privacy-friendly solutions for which we have to pay and free solutions for which we pay with our own private information?

These are the kinds of questions the main speaker, Professor Kurt Imhof from the Institute of Sociology at the University of Zurich, will be addressing at the 7th European Data Protection Day. As last year, representatives of the IT Crowd Club Liechtenstein will be carrying out an interactive survey among the audience to measure the “feeling” about the different issues.



This will be followed by a panel discussion, with the panel including the main speaker and Patrik Marxer, President of the IT Crowd Club, Christine Wohlwend (IKT Forum Liechtenstein), Heidi Derungs Hasler (Association for Supported Living in Liechtenstein) and the Data Protection Officer, Dr. Philipp Mittelberger. The panel will be chaired by Professor Jan vom Brocke, Head of the Institute of Information Systems at the University of Liechtenstein.

At the end of the event, participants will have the opportunity to exchange ideas at a drinks reception. Admission is free. Participants are asked to register at info@dss.llv.li.
