What are your concerns around encryption? What questions do you have about the legal, technical and policy aspects of the increasing use of encryption? How does encryption help bring about a higher level of trust in the Internet?

On Wednesday, May 25, the Internet Society and its Greater Washington, DC Chapter are hosting an "Online Dialogue About Encryption” to discuss all these questions and many more.

The event starts at 13:30 UTC which is 9:30am US Eastern and 3:30pm Central European Time. To participate, you simply join online at the start time.

The session will be moderated by the Internet Society's Christine Runnegar and the speakers are:

  • Olaf Kolkman, Chief Technology Officer, Internet Society
  • Kimmo Ulkuniemi, Assistant Director, Cyber Strategy & Outreach, INTERPOL Global Complex for Innovation
  • Courtney Radsch, Advocacy Director, Committee to Protect Journalists
  • Amitabh Singhal, Director, Telxess Consulting Services (Pvt) Ltd (India)
  • Amie Stepanovitch, U.S. Policy Director, Access Now

People have already been submitting questions to the @InternetSociety Twitter account or using the #InternetTrust hashtag — and judging from those I think the session should be great!

Please join us in this discussion!

P.S. For background information about the Internet Society's views on encryption, please see our encryption page.
