Next Digital Privacy Salon 20/10/20: Cybersecurity Week Special: CRYPTO WARS

PLEASE TAKE NOTE: IN THIS EVENT CRYPTO = ENCRYPTION! WE WILL NOT BE TALKING ABOUT BITCOIN & OTHER SO-CALLED “CRYPTOCURRENCIES” NOR “THE BLOCKCHAIN”

Cybersecurity Week Luxembourg is an advocacy-campaign week, which aims to raise awareness of cybersecurity threats, promote cybersecurity among citizens, corporate and SMEs, and provide up-to-date security information through education and sharing best practices.

Crypto Wars?

If you use the Internet, you use encryption whether you realise it or not…
In this edition of the Salon we will be looking at the “war” on encryption, why there cannot be a “back door for the good guys”, and how weakening encryption affects every single person online.

Luxembourg Digital Privacy Salon is free, intended for everyone, no prior technical expertise is assumed.

Digital Privacy Salons are skill & knowledge sharing sessions which aim to teach people the basic ways of protecting themselves and their data from intrusive surveillance and unwanted/unwitting information gathering.

Generally the salons deal with how to have private conversations over instant messaging, emails, how to browse anonymously amongst other things.

It is very important that you leave the Privacy Salon with tools & knowledge you can use on a daily basis, and explain to your friends how to do it too. All the attendees should come with device(s) they want to install tools on.
