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.
