Abstract

On Friday, October 12th, 2012, Carnegie Mellon University CyLab will host two screenings of CODE 2600, an award-winning full-length documentary on the societal implications of cyber security and cyber risk; and these evening screenings will be preceded by an afternoon panel in which some CyLab experts will join the filmmaker for a discussion of the film and the important issues it highlights.

In Code 2600, writer/director Jeremy Zerechak not only documents the rise of the Information Technology Age, but he also interviews many of those involved in this extraordinary shift in how we communicate, learn, transact business, and yes, conduct war. Cyber security and privacy luminaries featured in Zerechak's film include: world-class cryptographer and security commentator Bruce Schneier, BlackHat and DEFCON founder Jeff Moss, leading security iconoclast Marcus Ranum, as well as Jennifer Granick, Director of Civil Liberties at Stanford University's Center for Internet and Society, and CyLab's own Lorrie Cranor, Director of CyLab Usable Privacy and Security (CUPS) Laboratory.

The screenings will be held at 7 p.m. and 10 p.m. on Friday, October 12, 2012, in McConomy Auditorium on the Pittsburgh campus of Carnegie Mellon University. A question and answer session with Jeremy Zerechak and Lorrie Cranor will be held at 9 p.m. These events are free.
