NSA Q&A with SoECS Associate Dean and Professor Babak Beheshti

“There is no such thing as anonymity anymore,” says School of Engineering Associate Dean and Professor Babak Beheshti, Ph.D., in a Q&A feature in NY Press. “All of this data is stored somewhere. The question remains who and in what capacity will they use that information. The question is policy as opposed to technology.”
 
In “Living in a PRISM State,” Beheshti notes that the Edward Snowden case “speaks to the gaps in the protocol” that allow for privacy to be compromised. While our personal information is accessible, it’s another issue to have the ability to download and take information off-site, says Beheshti.
