Fireside Chat: Chilling Effects on Security Research

1401 K Street NW, Suite 200, Washington, DC

March 12 , 2018

For many years, security researchers, infosec experts, and hackers have faced negative consequences such as legal threats and prosecution for simply doing their jobs. These so-called “chilling effects” have reached near-mythical status, and the level of understanding of potential risks varies throughout the tech policy community. Please join us for a discussion of the hazards that security researchers face, and a dissection of the myths, facts, and norms that exist around their work.

Discussion will begin promptly at 5 PM and be followed by a short reception.
