Please join us on November 5, 2009 to discus future privacy and  
security challenges in online social networks.

Online Social Networks have become an important part of daily digital  
interactions for more than half a billion users around the world. The  
various personal information sharing practices that online social  
network providers promote have led to their success as innovative  
social interaction platforms. At the same time, these practices have  
raised much critique and concerns with respect to privacy and security  
from different stakeholders. Addressing these privacy and security  
concerns in online social networks results in research challenges, but  
what exactly are those challenges? What problems exist? Which existing  
security and privacy tools can be applied to address existing  
concerns? Which tools need to be developed in the future? Are existing  
legal frameworks able to address raised concerns? Where do they fail  
to meet the needs of the social networking communities and those who  
do not participate in them? What social practices lead to some of the  
existing problems and which ones exist or can be promoted to develop  
community privacy and security practices? How can we develop holistic  
perspectives and endeavor multi-disciplinary studies on privacy and  
security in social networks that can transcend techno, legal or human  
centric approaches?

The objective of this one day workshop is to bring together  
representatives from the industry as well as researchers and  
practitioners from law, computer science, social sciences working in  
the field of social networks together with an interested audience. We  
will discuss what current privacy and security concerns are, envision  
future social networks in which these concerns can be addressed, and  
explore what research challenges exist or may arise from those visions.

Ronald Leenes, our keynote speaker will open the day, followed by  
interactive sessions together with Anders Albrechtslund, Bettina  
Berendt, Joseph Bonneau, Dave Clarke, Claudia Diaz, Gloria González  
Fuster, Koen Gorissen, Eva Lievens, Giuseppe Lugano, Frank Piessens,  
and Cedric De Vleeschauwer.

This workshop is organized by the COSIC Privacy and Identity  
Management Group (ESAT, K.U. Leuven) in collaboration with the groups  
HMDB, DISTRINET and ICRI at K.U. Leuven and Netlog, Belgium.

   Keynote Talk, 10:10 - 11:00
	   Ronald Leenes , Tilburg Institute for Law, Technology, and  
Society, Tilburg University, Netherlands

SNSs pose a plethora of privacy issues that are reasonably well  
understood (see ENISA study, art 29 wp report etc). These studies  
contain all sorts of recommendations, but most prominently call for  
raising awareness of the SNS users as well as implementing security  
measures. This advice is not very helpful because it underestimates  
the innate social aspects of SNSs and how these platforms meet the  
social needs of their users. In order to be more effective we need to  
understand the social dynamics of social networks. I will briefly  
discuss why teens have no choice but to be on SNSs and on SNSs, data  
disclosure is the norm. Next I will focus on a couple of approaches to  
reconcile privacy and sociability in SNS. I will discuss two kinds of  
attackers in more detail: snoopers (parents, teachers, employers) and  
platform providers who harvest the data as part of their business  
model, and discuss remedies for their attacks.
