Critical Conversations: Surveillance in a Digital Age
October 26 at 7:30pm
Authors in candid, live conversation reflect on the topics that matter most during this unprecedented time. In this presentation, experts will examine our growing use of digital platforms, in a time when many in-person activities are moved online, and their disturbing influence and impact on our private everyday lives. From corruption allegations to privacy concerns, you’ll gain an understanding of the potential digital threats from companies and tools that we often take for granted. Dr. Ann Cavoukian (Privacy Payoff: How Successful Businesses Build Customer Trust), one of the world’s leading privacy experts and former Information and Privacy Commissioner of Ontario; renowned technology and security expert Ronald Deibert (Reset: Reclaiming the Internet for Civil Society); and Evan Greer, Campaign Director of Fight for the Future will join this discussion moderated by Brenda McPhail, Director of Privacy, Technology & Surveillance Project at Canadian Civil Liberties Association. Tune in each day of the Festival to hear new speakers in critical conversation about the topics shaping today’s new world.
