The latest in Penn College’s Centennial Colloquia Series tackled issues near and dear to virtually everyone in the audience: employing the newest technological tools available to ensure identity protection – and balancing such factors as privacy and cost-effectiveness in the process. Lisa R. Bock, an assistant professor of computer information technology, presented “Who Am I; Who Do I Claim to Be? Protecting Identity in the 21st Century” on Tuesday night in the Klump Academic Center Auditorium. Adding to the series’ engaging focus on the historic upshot of gizmos and gadgets, Bock weighed the promise (and pitfalls) of biometrics: identifying individuals through a variety of unique personal traits. The presentation has been the college’s YouTube Channel.
