August 31, 2010 – Hour 2

How can we protect our privacy while still using increasingly ubiquitous devices like cell phones, GPS’s, and personal computers?

Ali Herischi and Edward Moawad, founding partners of Moawad & Herischi LLP, start off the show with a discussion of a case which highlights the tension between privacy and technology. They are representing Iranian journalist Isa Saharkhiz in his suit against Nokia Siemens Networks for allegedly releasing information to the Iranian government that let them use his cell phone for surveillance.

Then our panel takes on the everyday challenges of online security and privacy.
