Event Hosts

This workshop is co-hosted by the Institute for Security, Technology, and Society (ISTS) and Peter Kiewit Computing Services (PKCS) at Dartmouth College.

The Institute for Security, Technology, and Society (ISTS)

ists_logoThe Institute for Security, Technology, and Society (ISTS) at Dartmouth College is dedicated to pursuing research and education to advance information security and privacy throughout society.

ISTS engages in interdisciplinary research, education and outreach programs that focus on information technology (IT) and its role in society, particularly the impact of IT in security and privacy broadly conceived. ISTS nurtures leaders and scholars, educates students and the community, and collaborates with its partners to develop and deploy IT, and to better understand how IT relates to socio-economic forces, cultural values and political influences. ISTS research improves our ability to:

  • Design and deploy secure, usable computer systems and protect them from tampering, disruption and attack
  • Enable people and organizations to communicate and exchange information securely and privately across networked computing devices
  • Address social, economic and policy issues that arise in the development, deployment and regulation of such information technology

Goals of ISTS

  • RESEARCH, to extend knowledge and provide insight and innovation in the area of information security
  • EDUCATION, to increase the number of students and faculty involved in technology research, and to increase community awareness of privacy and security challenges and solutions related to IT
  • OUTREACH, through collaborations that deploy technology and encourage knowledge transfer for both public and private benefit

Peter Kiewit Computing Services (PKCS)

pkcs_logoPeter Kiewit Computing Services (PKCS) leads the institution in creating and managing the information technology environment of the College, and enables all members of the institution to use information resources effectively, productively, and securely in support of Dartmouth College's mission and goals.
