Welcome to Startup Policy Lab’s The Policy Series, hosted by Runway! For our first October session, we go one-on-one with Jennifer Granick, Director of Civil Liberties at Stanford Center for Internet and Society (CIS).

As the keynote speaker at Black Hat this year, Director Granick issued a call of action that hit the media by storm: we are in danger of losing the freedom of the Internet and "need to protect the dream of a free and open Internet."

Join us on October 15th, for a screening of highlights from Director Granick's keynote address followed by a fireside chat between Director Granick and Timothy Yim, Startup Policy Lab's Dir. of Data and Privacy, and audience Q&A.

Topics for the night include:

  • DOJ - friend or foe?
  • What role should the government play to balance individual privacy, national security, and support innovation?
  • What role can hackers play in protecting our privacy - hacktivists for good?

Appetizers and libations will be provided.
