MozFest 2019

If you love the Internet, you’ll love MozFest. And we were there this year, too.

The Internet Society was at Ravensbourne University, on the 8th floor in the Privacy and Security space.

Encryption – Fact and Fantasy

We hosted a panel discussion on encryption Sunday 27 October from 12:45-13:45 at Innovation Space – Level 5.

This session explored the encryption debate, as efforts to force “backdoors” and other means to weaken encryption increase in intensity from many sides – including technologists, governments, law enforcement agencies, and national security interests.

Panelists included:

Steve Olshansky, Internet Society (moderator)
Desiree Miloshevic, Afilias
Owen Bennett, Mozilla
Olivier MJ Crépin-Leblond, Internet Society UK Chapter

Beyond the Privacy Policy: Privacy and Security Norms in IoT

We also talked about the safety and security of IoT devices. The Internet Society together with Mozilla Foundation and Consumers International have documented a range of approaches to privacy and security among different manufacturers of IoT devices.

The Internet Society’s Jeff Wilbur discussed and got feedback on our Minimum Security Guidelines for IoT.

If you could’t make it to MozFest, there are many other ways you can help. Join us and become part of an amazing community dedicated to creating an Internet for everyone.
