Welcome to Third Eye Weekly–a podcast dedicated to answering the big questions through intimate story telling. Tune in and listen to BTR hosts Zach Schepis and Lisa Autz as they weave spoken word, independent music, and unique stories that help bring our inner and external selves to full circle.
Today’s podcast is about hacking. In our growing cyber-connected world, computer hacking seems to be moving in binary directions. At the one hand, ridding us of the sense of personal privacy in a wild west of identity fraud and manipulation, while simultaneously inspiring a movement for government transparency and accountability.
Our big question is: How can hacking have the best benefits for our society and how do we wisely navigate the battlefield of its negative counterparts?
We’ll talk with Dr. Ross Koppel, a sociology professor at the University of Pennsylvania who researches healthcare information technology. Dr. Koppel looks at the lagging technology information systems in healthcare and how we can better secure vital personal information from hackers.
We’ll also chat with Adam Levin, the former director of the New Jersey Division of Consumer Affairs and the co-founder of credit.com and Identity Theft 911. Levin will be speaking with us about his company Identity Theft 911 and how the online provider of personal, identity management solutions, identity theft recovery services, breach services and data risk management solutions for businesses is helping victims of hackers.
Lastly, for our Third Eye perspective into the question this week we’ll wrap it up by talking with Herb Lin, who is a senior research scholar for cyber policy and security at the Center for International Security and Cooperation. He’s also a research fellow at Stanford University, where the international Cyber Summit was held recently.
