Dr Maria Helen Murphy was recently interviewed for this month's cover story of The Sunday Business Post's Connected magazine.
In the story, Emmet Ryan explores how 'our increased dependency on connectivity forces us to strike bargains we don't fully understand'. As part of the story's consideration of the benefits and risks of increased connectivity, Dr Murphy was interviewed about the privacy concerns that arise from the increased prevalence of smartphones, connected homes, and Internet of Things devices. Dr Murphy argues that the benefits of new technologies and data uses must be questioned and not assumed.
Dr Murphy lectures Information Privacy Law and Information Technology Law at the postgraduate level and lectures Media Law and Civil Liberties at the undergraduate level.
