About

In this era of heavy Internet surveillance, are the issues of availability, service performance and affordability being eclipsed by fears of national security?

Over recent weeks we have seen a range of Internet issues come to general attention:

  • Government agencies allegedly conducting mass surveillance overseas
  • Attempts to legislate for mass record keeping about the activity of Australians online
  • New NBN policy approaches
  • International mobile data roaming charges out of control

Speakers from the Internet Society will give an overview of their top five Internet issues for Australians, with a chance for attendees to contribute their own top five to the discussion.

Attendees will also have the opportunity to compare notes with our colleagues from other Asia-Pacific nations with news from chapters around the region.

Speakers:

  • David Vaile, Executive Director, Cyberspace Law and Policy Centre UNSW
  • Rajnesh Singh, Regional Director, Asia-Pacific Regional Bureau ISOC
  • Narelle Clark, President, Internet Society of Australia
  • Jon Lawrence, Executive Officer, Electronic Frontiers Australia
