Fostering security, privacy and openness

4 December 2008 - A Main Session on Security in Hyderabad, India

Original Proposal

In correspondence with the previous panel on the dimensions of cybersecurity and cybercrime, this second panel will underline the intricate relations existing between security, privacy and openness and address how to handle possible tensions between them and how it is possible to foster them simultaneously.

It will help to map the different issues raised by privacy and openness and will in particular draw upon the expertise gathered for several parallel workshops on child protection, privacy and freedom of expression. 

The panel will encourage participants to share their views and proposals regarding the coexistence of three potentially conflicting principles on the basis of their personal experiences, both as users and in their professional capacity, in order to feed in the discussion  in the afternoon session.
