ABOUT THE HOSTS:
Privacy International is a London-based charity committed to fighting for the right to privacy across the world. PI was founded in 1990 and was the first organisation to campaign at an international level on privacy issues.
We investigate the secret world of government surveillance and expose the companies enabling it. We litigate to ensure that surveillance is consistent with the rule of law. We advocate for strong national, regional, and international laws that protect privacy. We conduct research to catalyse policy change. We raise awareness about technologies and laws that place privacy at risk, to ensure that the public is informed and engaged. To ensure that this right is universally respected, we strengthen the capacity of our partners in developing countries and work with international organisations to protect the most vulnerable.
The Electronic Frontier Foundation is an international civil society non-governmental organization with more than 28,000 members in 67 countries, which is dedicated to the protection of citizens’ civil rights in the digital world, and the creation of balanced laws that enable access to knowledge, empower consumers and foster technology innovation. At Wednesday's Speakeasy, EFF will be represented by Senior Staff Attorney David Greene and International Rights Director Katitza Rodriguez.
