Speaking at "Computers, Freedom, and Privacy" conference

Computers, Freedom & Privacy logo

I’m excited, and a bit overwhelmed, to be the sole non-governmental panelist in the opening plenary session of this year’s Computers, Freedom, and Privacy conference in Washington:

A Clash of Civilizations: The EU and US Negotiate the Future of Privacy

Tuesday, June 14, 2011; 9:00 AM - 10:30 AM (Hart Auditorium, Georgetown Law Center)

Europe and the US have very different ideas on what laws and institutions are needed to protect privacy. High level negotiations between the EU and US will set the international standards for the use of personal data by governments and the private sector. Government officials and experts from both sides of the Atlantic will explore those differences and discuss what is at stake for Americans and the world.

Moderator: Barry Steinhardt: Founder, Friends of Privacy USA; Senior Advisor and Trustee, Privacy International; Member of the DHS Data Privacy and Integrity Advisory Committee


There’s lots more interesting stuff on the program. Registration for CFP is still open, and I look forward to seeing some of you there!

"Don't believe anything just because you read it on the Internet. Anyone can say anything on the Internet, and they do. The Internet is the most effective medium in history for the rapid global propagation of rumor, myth, and false information." (From The Practical Nomad Guide to the Online Travel Marketplace, 2001)
