It’s a hot topic that concerns us all, so join the discussion and investigate the least explored and least known world of internet privacy!

The New Age of Internet Security

Considering the recent NSA scandal and Edward Snowden’s shocking leak to the world, it is easy to wonder if there is any digital privacy anymore. The Internet is still so new and it’s frontiers and boundaries still largely unknown. Privacy and data protection regulation is necessary and calls for more discussion, research and solutions. This course gives you the opportunity to see how human rights can fit into this seemingly lawless no man’s land.
