Technical Discussion „The Future of Privacy“ this Friday in Berlin – organised by TOR, OX and mailbox.org

The Future of Privacy is In Our Hands:

Trade-offs between Usability, Security and Encryption – a Technical Discussion

For Friday afternoon (October 9th) we organised an intimate conversation with technologists and friends from the Tor Networks, i2 Coalition and Open-Xchange at the ExRotaprint building in Berlin. We would like to invite all privacy interessted people to share with the best of the best technical solutions and cold beer over how secure IT infrastructures and data privacy can be achieved.

Seats are limited! Please register via mail at presse@mailbox.org. We will provide you with the concrete adress and time of the panel discussion.

It is a fundamental right of democracy that privacy is being respected and protected. And waiting for legislative – led privacy suggestions that politicians debate endlessly – their compromises at best only make the terrible less terrible. At worst, things will just get worse. The real issue is: unless we do something, (Internet) privacy is just a historical dream of a forgotten era. How can we make encryption not only easy-to-use and ubiquitous but the preferred standard for communications and business? What language is required to get standards in place fast and what legislation can be passed that builds a positive agenda for the Internet? How can we be proactive and on top of things so we’re not fighting from behind? Let’s have a lively debate in a casual setting, with leading technology experts, business leaders and the pioneers right in the middle challenging all sides of what the Internet needs to become.

Join this Privacy Salon at the new offices of the Tor community in the Exrotaprint Building and learn just how we must secure the future of Internet privacy together.
