tl;dr: This event is an opportunity for privacy conscious people to have
a discussion with governments and corporations.
For context, it seemed like we needed more discussion with policymakers
in Europe about the issues around trust and identity. I reached out to
the organizer of this event and suggested the topic. As a result, there
is now a third focus topic:
"Privacy and Identity
While “better” identities like Facebook’s real names or government
issued eIDs relieve certain security threats, they are against certain
privacy principles and result in a shifted risk equation. What are the
positions, options and best practices for actors in this ecosystem,
joining different jurisdictions across the Internet?"
One of the goals here is to open a channel to bridge the quite large
divide between government/business and privacy, and figure out if there
are better ways to handle a lot of the issues we're seeing today. The
"real" names issue is a big one, but there are many others (data
sharing, lack of accountability, etc).
