Making Privacy Useable

Philipp Murkowsky

20 min. talk
The amount of data each of us generates is ever increasing and paints an increasingly accurate, and personal portrait of our lives. This talk will discuss privacy as one of the greatest challenges of the information age, answering some of the critical questions we face today.

Data
Big data
IoT
Privacy
Psychology
Ethics

The usage of all the connected things among us leaves a lot of traces. Our digital footprint is growing constantly and many users are not fully aware how much and what kind of data is created by or about them on every single day.

While some of this data is collected without our explicit consent, we actively and deliberately store a large amount of personal data on systems that are beyond our control. When combined together, this data shows a detailed portrait of who we are. This gives an enormous power and responsibility to the companies that own these systems. Therefore, privacy issues are one of the main problems of the information age.

In this talk, we will explore the field of privacy from the perspective of usability and psychology and we will answer the following questions:

  • How can we keep our privacy in a world of interconnected devices and services? What do we need to make privacy convenient and useable?
  • How can we increase the awareness of the users regarding their digital footprint?
  • Do users actively decide to entrust someone with their data or is this just something they casually accept?
  • What is the perceived and effective level of control, that users have regarding their data and how can we increase this level?
