Privacy, Surveillance, and the Cloud: One Year Later

3 September 2014 - A Workshop on Other in Istanbul, Turkey

Agenda

IGF 2014 sub theme that this workshop fall under

Enhancing Digital Trust

Description

In previous years our workshops have looked at data flows, surveillance, and freedom of expression. As the world embraces the cloud business model, we look at the cloud world 18 months after revelations alleging mass-government surveillance. We propose looking at how policy makers, regulator, cloud businesses, and users have responded to potential government access to user data in the cloud. What has been the resulting policy? What has the business world done to address concerns? What has worked and what hasn’t? Has there been an impact? We’ll address how these measures have affected cloud adoption, and explore potential solutions for addressing multi-stakeholder concerns in the post-revelation era.

Description of how the proposer plan to facilitate discussion amongst speakers, audience members and remote participants

Similar to previous sessions that I’ve moderated and IGF, I will begin by asking panelists introductory questions to lay the foundation for the ensuing discussion and debate. I will then ask panelists challenging questions while encouraging concurrent and active participation from the local and remote attendees. This should encourage debate, similar to session that I’ve had the privilege of chairing in prior years.

Description of the proposer's plans for remote participation

Similar to sessions hosted in prior years, I will elicit comments and participation from both remote and onsite attendees, including comment from remote panelists as necessary. The goal is to avoid limiting participation only to those that have the funds, time or physical ability to travel - but rather, to foster greater inclusivity for all those that wish to participate.
