As more and more communication media are going wireless, it becomes urgent 
to analyze the privacy implications of a wireless world. This is the aim of 
Mike Gurski's lecture. To do so he departs from the general questions of 
what is wireless and why we should be concerned about privacy in a wireless 
world, to then engage in a schematic analysis of the privacy goals in a 
wireless world and what different organizations and institutions can do to 
achieve them. Mike Gurski will then draw on his personal experience to 
offer a case study which illustrates the different problems and solutions 
of a wireless future.

Mike Gurski is the Senior Policy and Technology Adivisor for the 
Information Privacy Commission of Ontario. Mike has published articles on 
e-mail encryption and P3P (Platform for Privacy Preferences), a privacy 
specification for the Web, as well as papers on Privacy Design Principles 
and Privacy Impact Assessments for Integrated Justice Technology Systems. 
This was done in partnership with the United States Justice Department's 
Office of Justice Programs. Mike also consults with the Ontario Government 
on their Enterprise Information Architecture, Public Key Infrastructure 
Inititiatives and Smart Card Project. Mike is also a member of the Policy 
Outreach Group the World Wide Consortium that is implementing P3Pinitiative.
