Encryption and Lawful Access: Stakeholder Speed Dating Event

‹ Back
Can privacy and security online really coexist through strong encryption? Should law enforcement authorities have access to your private communications?

The Internet Society’s European Bureau organized an intimate evening of networking and lively discussion in Brussels on 25 June.

We shared thoughts on what encryption and lawful access solutions mean for crime prevention and combatting terrorism, particularly in the light of the recent G7 outcome document and the Christchurch Call.

The speakers represented civil society, EU institutions, business and technical community and took part of the discussions in a fun, casual and highly informative format.

Our special speakers were:

  • Julie Ward, MEP, European Parliament
  • Peter Eberl, Deputy Head of Unit for Cybersecurity and Digital Privacy, DG CONNECT
  • Jens-Henrik Jeppesen, Director for European Affairs, Center for Democracy & Technology
  • Klaus Landefeld, Vice Chair of the Board & Director Infrastructure & Networks, eco – Association of the Internet Industry
