The Internet affects power, and power affects the Internet. As power manifests itself in the Internet, does security allows both the powerful and the powerless to thrive? These complexities fuel the societal issues of the Information Age when data equals power.

This is the third event in the "Controversial Issues in Security Studies" Series" presented by the Department of Political Science and the Northeastern Humanities Center.

Reception to follow.

Free and open to the public.
