Join Kurt Opsahl, Eva Galperin, Alexis Hancock, Rory Mir, and Hannah Zhao of EFF for a candid chat about how the law is racing to catch up with technological change and discovery. Then meet representatives from Electronic Frontier Alliance allied community and campus organizations from across the country. These technologists and advocates are working within their communities to educate and empower their neighbors in the fight for data privacy and digital rights.
This discussion will include updates on current EFF issues such as the government's effort to compromise free expression online, the fight to end face surveillance, updates on cases and legislation affecting security research, and discussion of EFF's technology projects empowering users with greater control of what information they share online.
Half of this session will be given over to question-and-answer, so it's your chance to ask EFF questions about the law, surveillance and technology issues that are important to you.
Meet the EFA Panelists:
- Emilie St-Pierre (Future Ada)
- Abi Hassen (BMLP)
- Elliot (Cypurr Collective)
- Tracy Rosenberg (Oakland Privacy)
