Experts Session on Encryption
Monday, August 20th, 2018 at 10:00 AM EEST
Internet Australia and the Internet Society are hosting an Experts Session on Encryption on 20 August 2018 direct from Parliament House, Canberra. During the session, international and local experts from across the field will discuss the technical aspects of encryption and digital security. They will explain how encryption is used to secure communications and data, and explore its role in the Australian digital economy. Experts will also discuss the risks.
More articles related to the topic of encryption, legislation, trust.
I recommend reading the related article by Kathryn Brown, President, The Internet Society. Here’s a quote:
“Encryption is a technical building block for securing infrastructure, communications and information. It should be made stronger and universal, not weaker.
However, rather than being recognized as the way to secure our online transactions or our conversations, all too often the debate focuses on the use of encryption as a way to thwart law enforcement.
To undermine the positive role of encryption in the name of security could have devastating consequences.”
