- Topic: “Privacy for Normal People”
Mozilla cares deeply about user control. But designing products that protect users is not always obvious. Sometimes products give the illusion of control and security while in reality offer little or none – a practice security expert Bruce Schneier calls “security theatre.” On the web, icons or other elements of design may assure users while not accurately reflecting the true status of the users’ privacy. Ultimately this risks eroding user trust.
Our speaker, an experienced product designer, will share findings of work she did in financial services to help us better design our products to accurately reflect a users’ status and options on the web, building increased confidence and trust.
Kat Matfield is a digital product and service designer. She’s worked with start-ups and large corporates to help make innovative new digital services or improve existing ones. In 2014, she spent most of the year researching and designing a new privacy product targeted at normal internet users. She’s fascinated by all the areas of life in which people believe strange things and behave irrationally – and there’s few better examples of this than privacy.

Optimizing for Uncertainty: Deciding and Moving Quickly
The web is increasingly complex and dynamic. In the natural realm, ‘complex adaptive systems’ allow for flux and change in tumultuous environments. Our December speaker will draw on these models to illustrate how modern organizations can decide and move quickly.
Mike will share how leading tech and product organizations are not simply adapting to increased change, but innovating and thriving in these dynamic environments by:
- operating around networks vs hierarchies
- distributing authority
- processing information effectively
- embracing structured and facilitated methods for collecting feedback and gaining consent on group action.
- Speaker: Mike Arauz is a Founding Member and Acting President at August, a New York based consulting firm that builds high-performing teams for the world’s most meaningful missions. Previously, Mike was a Partner at Undercurrent, where he worked with leaders of global companies to transform how their organizations work and thrive in the 21st century, including GE, Pearson, and The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. Mike is also a co-author of the Responsive.org manifesto and a leading contributor to the global self-management and future of work movement.
