CIC Winnipeg: “Look Who’s Watching” by Fen Hampson

May 16 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm

CIC_Winnipeg_logo

“Look Who’s Watching” by Fen Osler Hampson and Eric Jardine confirms in vivid detail that the trust placed by users in the Internet is increasingly misplaced. Edward Snowden’s revelations that the United States National Security Agency and other government agencies are spying on Internet users, the proliferation of cybercrime and the growing commodification of user data and regulatory changes – which threaten to fragment the system – are all rapidly eroding the confidence users have in the Internet ecosystem.

Speaker’s Biography
Fen Osler Hampson is the director of CIGI’s Global Security & Politics Program and professor at Carleton University. He is also the co-author of Brave New Canada: Meeting the Challenge of a Changing World, with Derek H. Burney.
