     Computers have brought about enormous changes in all aspects of our 
lives over the last 20 years. The next 20 years are likely to see 
changes of even bigger magnitude. Soon, every fact about us, and every 
one of our movements, our utterances, and perhaps even our thoughts, 
will be routinely recorded by computers. Controlling who has access to 
this information is becoming a great technological challenge, as mobile 
and cloud-based services are adopted widely. The information may be 
deliberately or inadvertently made available on a wide scale. The 
lecture will discuss these problems and some relevant research being 
conducted in Birmingham.

     Mark is professor of computer security at University of Birmingham, 
and also EPSRC Leadership Fellow. (EPSRC is the national science funding 
agency.) He founded in 2006 and now leads the security group, which 
consists of 5 academics and 20 postdocs and PhD students. Mark has 
recently worked in protocol analysis, electronic voting, access control, 
cloud computing security, TPM analysis, privacy, and process calculus. 
In 2008 Mark spent 7 months at Hewlett Packard, on a secondment from the 
University funded by the Royal Academy of Engineering. This experience 
changed his life.
