Event Description

Priv8 is a virtual summit on digital privacy. The COVID-19 pandemic has put digital privacy at the forefront of the global conversation and Priv8 will bring experts from governments, corporations and NGOs together to provide insights in the future of privacy in the digital age. Priv8 topics will illuminate the battlelines between freedom versus safety in the perpetual privacy crisis, focusing on how we communicate, transact financially and live in the era of digital surveillance. The keynotes and panels will cover everything from encryption, decentralization, the death of cash and the rise of financial surveillance as well as how to flatten the curve and contain the surveillance virus. Attendees can expect to learn about how the pandemic has shifted the conversation on digital privacy, what developments experts will be focused on in 2021 and how regular people can join the fight for freedom while protecting their rights.

The summit is hosted by the blockchain-powered decentralized VPN, Orchid, as well as the Linux Foundation and will feature talks from leading privacy advocates and experts including keynotes from Electric Coin Company CEO, Zooko Wilcox, Electronic Frontier Foundation Executive Director, Cindy Cohn, Digital Minister of Taiwan, Audrey Tang, Executive Director at the Linux Foundation, Brian Behlendorf, Whistleblower & Cybersecurity Expert, Edward Snowden, and Orchid’s Co-founder/CEO, Dr. Steven Waterhouse. The event will take place March 23-25, 2021.
