February 28, 2013 - 8:00am to 9:00am
San Francisco

From the event description: "A new breed of cyber criminals is experiencing an unprecedented heyday spreading illicit content across the social web. Every day, perpetrators use social media to bully and spread hate speech, distribute child pornography, and commit election fraud. As state and federal legislators, regulators, and technologists struggle to keep up, questions around liability, censorship and prevention abound."
