Former TRUST REU Student to Participate in FTC conference on Privacy and Technology

Ibrahim Altaweel, a participant in the TRUST Center’s 2014REU program, has been selected to present research at PrivacyCon, a conference organized by the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) to discuss the latest research and trends related to consumer privacy and data security. Altaweel worked with Berkeley Professor Nathan Good at the School of Information to develop his research, which provided an update to ongoing work to “web privacy census.” The census measures online tracking and provides a framework for policymakers to advocate for more privacy rights for consumers.

Altaweel will be one of just 20 researchers presenting at the event.
