Silicon Valley Human Rights Conference is already sold out – full to capacity!

But you can watch the stream here on EZebis.com

Highlight on Friday April 1 is Fireside Chat Ron Deibert, Edward Snowden & Amie Stepanovich 9am to 10:15am Pacific.

We are witnessing a global arms race on surveillance. Intelligence arms of governments are
developing or buying technologies capable of tracking internet traffic, intercepting sensitive
communications, and hacking into personal devices. In some countries this is done in line with
statutory frameworks, which are often applied using secret interpretations, whereas other
governments take advantage of the lack of framework to abuse personal rights and liberties at
will. For users at risk, preserving privacy requires constant diligence, and in some cases it is
quite frequently a matter of life and death. Join Edward Snowden, a member of the Board of
Directors at the Freedom of the Press Foundation, and Ron Deibert, Director of the Citizen Lab
at the University of Toronto’s Munk School of Global Affairs, in a fireside chat, moderated by
Access Now’s Amie Stepanovich. The conversation will consider the formal and informal
government surveillance powers and authorities, including the need for transparency and the
opportunities for reform.
