Seventh Annual Public Policy Symposium on the Law & Economics of Privacy and Data Security @ George Mason University Antonin Scalia Law School
May 10 @ 8:00 am – 4:45 pm
Seventh Annual Public Policy Symposium on the Law & Economics of Privacy and Data Security @ George Mason University Antonin Scalia Law School | Arlington | Virginia | United States

We invite you to join us at Seventh Annual Public Policy Symposium on the Law & Economics of Privacy and Data Security on May 10, 2019, presented by the Program on Economics & Privacy of the Law & Economics Center at George Mason University’s Antonin Scalia Law School in Arlington, Virginia.

The revelation of the Cambridge Analytica scandal marked a tipping point in policy debates around Big Data, but while new regulations seem inevitable, the path of American privacy and data security law is still uncertain. How should lawmakers respond to the mounting public distrust of the digital economy? This year’s annual public policy symposium will harvest the insights from empirical research in order to better understand the nature of modern privacy risks as well as the risks of potential government interventions. Our distinguished speakers will comment on the likely impact of proposed omnibus privacy bills that have been circulating in Congress as well as the practical challenges of protecting personal data in specific contexts such as health, policing, and the U.S. Census.

The symposium will include a luncheon address by Harvard Law professor, Yochai Benkler, and a fireside chat with Neil Chilson, former FTC staff attorney. The four panels include “The Empirical Economics of Privacy and Data Security: What Do We Know, and What Do We Wish We Knew?”, “Case Studies: Privacy in the Context of Health, Elections, Policing, Environmental Innovation, and Smart Cities”, “Dueling Federal Privacy Bills”, and “Privacy and Access to Public Research Datasets.”
