The Economics of End User Responsibility for Privacy
Our modern information economy has been built upon users’ acceptance and use of digital technologies that have enabled companies and government organizations to glean valuable meaning from the data generated by this use. This panel of experts will discuss the potential tradeoffs inherent in asking users to take a greater or lesser role in protecting their own privacy.

Cognitive Limits to End User Responsibility for Privacy
The ability of users to manage their privacy with increasingly complex technologies depends heavily on the user’s ability to understand their environment. This panel will draw on expertise in cognitive and social psychology, and privacy law to explore whether and how end users can exercise control over their information privacy.

Technology to Enhance or Replace End User Responsibility for Privacy
Since the Snowden revelations of 2013, countless articles have been written advising users on raising their information security and privacy awareness by taking a more defensive approach in their online lives. These approaches often require users to develop a deeper understanding of new technologies and tools, a proposition many users do not relish. This panel will discuss how technology can be used to enhance user privacy without inadvertently making the problem worse.
