Governments and populations are struggling to reconcile privacy interests with the need to counter terrorism and cybercrime. They face growing threats from information warfare and cyberattacks, with little clarity on how to prevent or respond to them and what norms apply. The positive values and effects of a global Internet and information space are challenged by calls to nationalize data jurisdictions, renew or broaden surveillance capabilities, and sustain investments in offensive capabilities.
Organized by the Carnegie Endowment in partnership with Microsoft, this event will gather 150 experts, government officials, think tankers, and private-sector representatives in two parallel panel discussions in Brussels and Washington, connected via state-of-the-art technology.
Speakers include Carmen Gonsalves, head of international cyberpolicy at the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs; Tim Maurer, associate at the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace; and Angela McKay, director for cybersecurity policy and strategy at Microsoft.
