Online security in the post-Snowden era: Lessons on encryption

  • Nov 21, 2013 · 7:00 PM

Edward Snowden's revelations about the NSA and U.S. government monitoring of the web have showed the importance of keeping online data safe. This is even more crucial for journalists dealing with confidential sources, who have become an increasing target in attempts to halt whistleblowers. We'll take a practical look at encryption and discuss how you can keep your data and sources safe online, including a look at technologies such as Tor, PGP and others. Our guide will be Parker Higgins, an activist with the Electronic Frontier Foundation.

Agenda
7-730: Meet and chat
[masked]: Discussion with Parker Higgins, EFF activist
830-9: More networking

Snacks and drinks provided.

Bio: Parker Higgins is an activist at the Electronic Frontier Foundation, specializing in issues at the intersection of freedom of speech and copyright, trademark, and patent law. He previously lived and worked in Berlin, Germany. Parker studied at the Gallatin School of Individualized Study at New York University, where he developed a concentration of "Creativity, Freedom of Speech, and Intellectual Property." While at NYU, he served on the board of the global Students for Free Culture organization and as the president of its NYU chapter.

    Thanks to Parker of EFF and KQED for an intelligent and tasty event! I couldn't stay for all of the presentation but enjoyed learning about https://www.torproject.org/‎ and pidgin.im and if anyone can post more links on what was discussed last night, that would be great!
