How safe is your smart home and can the law protect you?

19 Sep 2017

Turning on your lights with your smart phone might make you feel secure, but advances in wi-fi technology are also making it easier for domestic violence perpetrators to spy on victims.

How the law can safeguard victims from technology-facilitated abuse will be the focus of Tuesday’s panel discussion and mini hackathon at the Organised Crime and Corruption Forum run by The University of Queensland’s TC Beirne School of Law and the Australian Institute for Business and Economics(AIBE).

UQ’s Dr Mark Burdon will appear on a panel moderated by Antony Funnel from ABC Radio National’s Future Tense program, discussing ‘The Smart Home as a Safer Place’ session on Tuesday 19 September from 4pm.
