Although the video is three hours long, you can skip around to any bit and find informative and interesting things about privacy.

The Next HOPE took place on July 16-18, 2010 at Hotel Pennsylvania in New York City.

This will be a wide-ranging lecture covering databases, privacy, and “computer-aided investigation.” This talk will include numerous examples of investigative online resources and databases, and will include an in-depth demonstration of an actual online investigation done on a volunteer subject.

Emphasis will be placed on discussing the “digital footprints” that we all leave in our daily lives, and how it is now possible for an investigator (or government agent) to determine a person’s likes and dislikes, religion, political beliefs, sexual orientation, habits, hobbies, friends, family, finances, health, and even the person’s actual physical whereabouts, solely by the use of online data and related activity. The final half hour of the talk will be devoted to Q&A.

A prosecutor with the state Office of Special Prosecutions and Appeals said former Anchorage Police Department officer Mark Moeller had a lot going for him before “he acted incredibly stupid.”

During his year and half as an APD officer Moeller used the Alaska Public Safety Information Network, or APSIN, to access information about an arrest warrant for his sister-in-law, and search her former boyfriend. Moeller also looked up DUI charges against a woman he had entered a relationship with after arresting her; his actions came to light when Moeller called a prosecutor to ask that the DUI be dropped, prompting a call from the prosecutor to APD.

Moeller initially faced eight felony charges and five misdemeanors for his actions, before making his plea agreement. He has been given a suspension in sentence for the felony criminal computer-use charge, meaning if he doesn’t violate terms of probation for two years the charge will be expunged from his record.

It sure must be nice to be charged with felonies and misdemeanors and have them whittled down to two years probation.
