NYIT Cyber-Security Talk  Time: 11:00am-12:00pm

Guest speaker Dr. Emiliano De Cristofaro, a very active scientist in the fields of privacy, security and applied cryptography will be presenting here at NYIT August 1st.



Title:

Studying and Protecting Internet Privacy: The Case of Internet Filtering and User Profiling




Abstract:

Either through a deliberate desire for surveillance or consequence of design, there is a growing number of systems and applications that record and process sensitive and personal information. Consequently, measuring, studying, and protecting Internet privacy becomes increasingly crucial.
For instance, many governments worldwide monitor and censor Internet traffic but, due to the lack of publicly available information as well as the inherent risks of performing active measurements, it is often hard to analyze these practices in the wild. Therefore, the leak of 600GB worth of logs from 7 Syrian filtering proxies represents a unique opportunity to provide a detailed snapshot of a real-world censorship ecosystem.
In this talk, we present the methodology and the results of a measurement-based analysis of the logs, uncovering a relatively stealthy, yet quite targeted, censorship, and show that traffic in Syria was filtered in several ways: using IP addresses and domain names to block subnets or websites, and keywords or categories to target specific content.
Next, we focus on targeted advertising, a practice increasingly used by a growing number of online service providers. These collect large amounts of personal information and use it to build user profiles and monetize them with advertisers and data brokers. Users have little control of what information is processed and are often left with an "all-or-nothing" decision between receiving free services or refusing to be profiled.
This talk explores an alternative approach where users only disclose an aggregate model -- the "gist" -- of their data. We aim to preserve data utility and simultaneously provide user privacy, by letting users contribute encrypted and differentially-private data to an aggregator. The aggregator combines encrypted contributions and can only extract an aggregate model of the underlying data. We evaluate our framework on a dataset of 100,000 U.S. users obtained from the U.S. Census Bureau and show that (i) it provides accurate aggregates with as little as 100 users, (ii) it can generate revenue for both users and data brokers, and (iii) its overhead is appreciably low.

His research interests include privacy, security, and applied cryptography. In 2011, he received the Dean's Dissertation Fellowship from UC Irvine and, in 2012, the Excellency Award from PARC's Computer Science Lab. In 2013-2014, he co-chaired the Privacy Enhancing Technologies Symposium (PETS) -- a fact that took two years away from his life expectancy. His homepage is available at http://emilianodc.com

The Move to a Single Accreditation Standard  Time: 10:00 am - 11:30 am


NYCOMEC is hosting a Faculty Development Program (approximately from 10:00am-11:30am)  in the Riland Auditorium at the NYIT Old Westbury Campus.

NYCOMEC is very excited to welcome Mr. Art Boll, CEO of Germane Solutions to speak to attendees about the agreement by the AOA, AACOM, and ACGME to move to a single accreditation standard by 2020 as it continues to move forward, the implications of this pending unification and how it may impact NYCOMEC and our Member Institutions.

This topic is something that Germane Solutions and their subject matter experts are looking at closely in order to understand the ramifications of the pending unification.  By doing so, they are preparing to support OPTIs and their member institutions in responding to the merger of the AOA and ACGME accreditation standards. The Germane team specializes in GME accreditation,  strategy, operations, and economics.  Their access to subject matter experts for both the American Osteopathic Association (AOA) and the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) allows them to leverage resources and connections within both accreditation worlds.

Please feel free to reach out to Randi Fox for more information or simply click here to register (required). You can also refer to the NYCOMEC July 15, 2014 Newsletter for more information.

  If you are not associated with the NYIT College of Osteopathic Medicine, but would like to attend, please contact Randi Fox at 516-686-1128 or email her
