Protecting Privacy and Society

Wednesday, Apr. 24, 2013

Consumer and business data is increasingly moving to the "cloud," and people are clamoring for protection of that data. However, as Symantec's President, CEO, and Chairman of the Board Steve Bennett points out in this cliip, "maximum privacy" is really anonymity, and some people use anonymity as a shield for illegal and unethical behavior. How should cloud service providers deal with this dilemma?

Bennett's remarks are part of the video series, Internet Ethics: Views From Silicon Valley. Responding is Robert Henry, Chief Information Security Officer, Santa Clara University.
