“Privacy V. Security, A flawed Perspective”
Hosted by SFLC.in

More info + registration here.

This panel discussion seeks to analyze and simplify various aspects of encryption and its implications upon individual privacy vis-a-vis broader security and law-enforcement considerations for the detection, prevention and investigation of offences. The idea is to also explore how the two concepts can coexist and what are the considerations which are to be kept in mind while regulating the use of encryption.
