New York University’s Institute for Public Knowledge will host a roundtable discussion on cyber crime, featuring U.S. Senator Kirsten Gillibrand, NYU Professor Helen Nissenbaum, and representatives from Facebook and the FBI, on Mon., Jan. 23, 8-10 a.m. at NYU’s Kimmel Center for University Life, Eisner and Lubin Auditorium, 4th Floor, 60 Washington Square South (at LaGuardia Pl.).

Cyber crime is a growing concern for law enforcement, corporations, and individuals, with its costs reaching billions of dollars annually. Each data breach costs American businesses an average of $6.6 million, and every hour, the FBI processes 35 cases through the Internet Crime Complaint Center. The panel will address the policy and law enforcement challenges from a broad perspective as well as the unique issues facing social media sites and users.

Panelists will be introduced by NYU President John Sexton, and the session will be moderated by Crime Commission President Richard Aborn. Panelists include: U.S. Senator Gillibrand; Associate General Counsel of Facebook, Chris Sonderby; FBI Special Agent in Charge of the Cyber/Special Operations Division, Mary Galligan; and Nissenbaum, a professor in the Steinhardt School of Culture, Education, and Human Development’s Department of Media, Culture, and Communication and senior faculty fellow at the Information Law Institute.
