Computer security is traditionally about the protection of technology, whereas trust and safety efforts focus on preventing technology abuse from harming people. In this talk, I'll explore the interplay between security and tech abuse, and make the case that trust and safety represents an important frontier for computer security researchers. To do so, I'll draw on examples from two lines of my recent work.

This panel of K-16 educators and administrators will discuss how to leverage one's privilege (and power) to do the important work of transforming computing courses, departments, and cultures. Topics will include not only how to counteract complacency to be better advocates and co-conspirators, but also challenges faced and the importance of ceding space to enact meaningful and sustainable change.
