I will be attending, and hopefully live blogging, a talk on cybersecurity over at Google’s DC Office. I hope the panel addressee issues including deep packet inspection and the potential for abusive uses like censorship. Here is a little more info on it:
In its Cyberspace Policy Review, the Obama Administration outlined a series of recommendations to defend against cyberattacks, while pending legislation seeks to promote more secure computer networks. Meanwhile, the Department of Defense has created a new cybersecurity command, raising questions on how to balance cybersecurity with user privacy and access.
As part of the ongoing Google D.C. Talks series, and in partnership with the Center for a New American Security, experts will offer perspectives on how the United States can implement a national cybersecurity strategy. Participants are invited to submit questions in advance via Google Moderator.
