Good Systems is hosting a fireside chat with Julie Brill, Microsoft’s Corporate Vice President and Deputy General Counsel, and Professor Sharon Strover from the Moody College of Communication.

Brill is a former FTC commissioner and is widely regarded as a data privacy and protection expert. As an FTC Commissioner, she worked intensively on the wave of new privacy issues accompanying technology changes including the Internet of Things (IoT) and the data brokering industry, and she also anticipated many of the current problems with algorithm-driven systems. Brill has called for more citizen-consumer choice in how personal data are used and stored and will be sharing some of her thoughts and knowledge with us on March 11 on the UT campus.
