Is It Possible To Be Safe Online?
2nd Annual Front Line Defenders Lecture, Dublin, Ireland
Co-sponsored by University College Dublin and Trinity College Dublin
Part 1: NSA & Background
What we’ve learned from the Snowden documents is that the NSA has turned the Internet into a giant surveillance platform.
Part 2: Society & Technology Today
Data is a byproduct of our information society socialization; a lot of the conversations we have – with friends, with college, with family members – happen in digital format.
Part 3: Metadata & Surveillance
Metadata fundamentally equals surveillance.
Part 4: Subverting the Internet
We’ve made it so that surveillance is much easier than security.
Part 5: Encryption
Do we build an internet that is vulnerable to all attackers or secure for all users?
Part 6: Solutions
The NSA might have a larger budget than everyone else in the world combined, but they are not made of magic.
Part 7: Secure Internet
A secure internet is in everyone’s best interest.
