Increasingly, social and economic interactions are mediated by online platforms and algorithmic systems that rely on ubiquitous connectivity and data accumulation for their operation. While these systems have brought an unprecedented number of new products and services that have fostered growth and innovation, they have also created novel challenges to privacy and data security. In this course, we explore privacy and data security as multi-faceted concepts with economic, legal, social, ethical, and psychological underpinnings.

Outcome 1: Identify the tradeoffs involved in decisions to protect or to disclose personal information.

Outcome 2: Understand information security not only as a technical problem, but a problem of competing incentives from multiple stakeholders.

Outcome 3: Relate economic and behavioral theories with privacy and security decisions.

Outcome 4: Analyze emerging privacy and security trends as a multi-faceted problem with technical and social dimensions.
