Månedens tema er: «Why Open Source is the key for Privacy and Digital Sovereignty» med Frank Karlitschek. Foredraget vil foregå på engelsk.

Kort om presentasjonen:

The security and the personal data on the internet are under attack by hackers and international espionage programs. The question who controls what data and application becomes more important every day. And governments care more and more about Digital Sovereignty and how this effects the future of countries.
The GDPR was supposed to give people more control over their data. But now that the European Court of Justice declared the US CloudAct incompatible with the GDPR, the question arises how data should be stored and processed in the future.
The Nextcloud community is building an open source and fully federated and distributed network for files and communication. Everyone can run a Nextcloud server at home or somewhere on the internet and collaborate and share with everyone else. Nextcloud can be used to provide file access, syncing, sharing, calendar, contacts, video calling, music and video streaming in a distributed way.
This talk will cover the current problems with surveillance and espionage, and strategies for how to fix this problem. It will also discuss the current and upcoming federation features of Nextcloud
