Our Speaker will be Riana Pfefferkorn:
Riana Pfefferkorn is the Cryptography Fellow at the Stanford Center for Internet and Society. Her work focuses on investigating and analyzing the U.S. government's policy and practices for forcing decryption and/or influencing crypto-related design of online platforms and services, devices, and products, both via technical means and through the courts and legislatures. Riana also researches the benefits and detriments of strong encryption on free expression, political engagement, economic development, and other public interests.
As per Privacy Lab's standard format, Riana will talk for 30 minutes, followed by a short Q&A session. Afterwards we will breakout into informal small group discussions and networking from 7-8pm If you can't make it to the talks/Q&A, you are still welcome to join us for the small groups and networking or vice versa.
Privacy Lab is a meeting for people who are interested in digital privacy in the Bay Area, and is a follow-up to previous events held at Mozilla and other spaces for the past year. The goal of these events is to bring together privacy professionals and privacy community members at non-profits, for-profits, and NGOs alike to foster communication and collaboration.
