In Zusammenarbeit mit dem bidt veranstaltet die Fakultät für Informatik der Technischen Universität München eine öffentliche Ringvorlesung zum Thema Digitalisierung. Betrachtet werden soll das Thema aus der Perspektive unterschiedlicher Disziplinen, um so ein übergreifendes und interdisziplinäres Verständnis der Materie zu erzielen.

Designing Governable Computing Systems

7. Juni 2021, 16:15-17:45 Uhr
via Zoom


Why is our society having such a hard time governing the new digital computing infrastructure? This talk presents new research in cybersecurity and privacy, offering a broad approach by which computer science can contribute systems that are better integrated with society’s public policy priorities. Our new approach to cybersecurity will provide previously unattainable cyber risk pricing metrics to guide private investment decisions, make cyber insurance markets more efficient, and shape cybersecurity regulations that are more effective. To address privacy needs, we propose changes to the underlying architecture of relational database systems to enable auditable conformance with state-of-the-art privacy values in laws such as the European Union General Data Protection Directive (GDPR).

Taken together, this work suggests we can improve computing governance with new extensions of two key concepts in the theory of computation. First, we describe policy soundness: the property of a computing system that shows it is logically sound with respect to a given legal ruleset. Second, technical completeness: the property of a law or regulation which shows the rules are logically complete with respect to the dynamics of a given computing system. Building these kinds of abstractions into systems and laws can make computing systems more governable and thus more trustworthy.
