We are thrilled to announce that Fereshteh Forough of Code to Inspire, Jeff John Roberts and Adriana Hamacher of Decrypt, Anne Fauvre-Willis of Oasis Labs, Harry Halpin of Nym Technologies, Cade Diehm of The New Design Congress and EEQJ's Jeffrey Paul will speak at Orchid's Priv8 Virtual Privacy Summit. Priv8, a first-of-its-kind event focused on digital privacy, is a venue for experts to share their experiences, predictions, hopes, and advice with like-minded people around the world. These professionals join a growing slate of distinguished speakers, including whistleblower and cybersecurity expert Edward Snowden, Electronic Frontier Foundation Executive Director Cindy Cohn, Digital Minister of Taiwan Audrey Tang, and Executive and Director at the Linux Foundation Brian Behlendorf.
At Priv8, speakers will engage with a range of topics including "Privacy and the Pandemic: Solutions Against Surveillance" and "Build your own Internet." In a time when Covid-19 has pushed so much of life online, and governments have enacted a variety of unprecedented emergency measures, privacy has surged to the forefront of public debate. In the midst of escalating danger from governments and corporations, robust discussion and education around the topic are more important than ever.
Priv8 will take place over three days, from March 23-25. A full schedule of events, as well as additional details about Priv8, will be made public. Register here to attend, free of charge.
