2019-02-03 2:15:23 PM 2019 Submission 13 Protecting Consumers Against Phone Phising Data Privacy As people have more information about themselves available online, with more data breaches occurring, it is simple for scammers to use credible information to build trust and initiate spear phasing attacks, leaving the victim with their personal identity information compromised and or financially distressed. Social engineering attacks are difficult to combat, and especially difficult to recover from in terms of financially, psychologically, and more. How might we help people protect themselves from theses phasing scams, particularly when they use social engineering tactics? This project will explore potential solutions to better protect consumers based on data collected on “VISHING’ (VOICE PHISING) attacks. The first phase will entail information gathering through in-depth interviews and scraping online sources, and the second phase will include designing a prototype of a tool for consumers to protect themselves against social engineering tactics and testing its plausibility with users.

2019-02-11 2:13:44 PM 2019 Submission 66 Status of efforts to create a US federal privacy framework Data Privacy With the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation in effect and US states (e.g., California) adopting privacy regulatory regimes, there is more pressure than ever before for the federal government to adopt a modern privacy framework. Already, work is afoot on the Hill, as well as at key federal agencies like NTIA and NIST. This session should feature policymakers, as well as IGF-USA community member viewpoints, and would (1) educate IGF-USA attendees on the current status of federal privacy framework efforts and how they relate, and (2) provide key perspectives from government, industry, civil society, and other IGF-USA community stakeholders. • https://www.adweek.com/programmatic/sen-marco-rubio-introduces-federal-privacy-legislation-to-supersede-state-laws/ • https://www.sfchronicle.com/politics/article/California-law-could-be-Congress-model-for-13604213.php • https://www.ajc.com/news/battle-lines-forming-ahead-looming-privacy-law-fight/BD23aBV4VamPNmzrXKX1QO/ • https://www.ntia.doc.gov/press-release/2018/ntia-seeks-comment-new-approach-consumer-data-privacy • https://www.nist.gov/privacy-framework Private Sector
