Cyber Security and Consumer Protection

Tackling Cyber Security has become a pressing issue as the world tends to depend on modern technology. The emergence of Internet of Things (IoT) and its security lapses is also a thing to reconsider. According to US President Barack Obama, at the Summit on Cyber Security and Consumer Protection held at Stanford. “Since this is a challenge that we can only meet together, I’m announcing that next month we’ll convene a White House summit on cyber security and consumer protection. It’s a White House summit where we’re not going to do it at the White House; we’re going to go to Stanford University. And it’s going to bring everybody together — industry, tech companies, law enforcement, consumer and privacy advocates, law professors who are specialists in the field, as well as students — to make sure that we work through these issues in a public, transparent fashion.”

Stanford’s broad network of thought leaders are taking an interdisciplinary approach to tackling the range of challenges and opportunities created by ever-changing technical advances. Here are just a few examples of how Stanford is working to address the world’s cyber security challenges.
