Surveillance, Cybersecurity, and the Future of the Internet

Join us at INET Washington, DC for a timely discussion with leading experts as they tackle the complex implications of the US Government surveillance programs.

The recent revelations regarding the apparent scope of U.S. government efforts to gather large amounts of end user information from U.S. Internet and telecom service providers for intelligence purposes have raised global concerns about Internet privacy, security and governance.

The Internet Society and others have expressed the specific concern that the unwarranted collection, storage and potential correlation of user data will undermine many of the key principles and relationships of trust upon which the global Internet has been built and that similar efforts by other governments will have a chilling effect on the deployment and adoption of technical solutions for establishing trusted connections online.

This half-day event will explore these concerns in depth, featuring experts on Internet privacy, security and governance.  The event will consist of a panel discussion with Q&A followed by an engaging roundtable discussion.

This program brought to you by the Internet Society and George Washington University’s Cyber Security Policy and Research Institute.
