Free and Safe in Cyberspace
6th Edition – 2019
Location: TBD (Rome, Vienna, or Brussels)
After 5 editions in Brussels, New York, Brazil, and last in Berlin last May 4th, we’ll meet again with top speakers and EU institutions to solve at root the deep insecurity of society critical IT systems in this Internet Age.
We’ll discuss how we can build new IT technologies and certification governance models that achieve levels of cybersecurity that are radically-higher than current state-of-the-art – as direly needed by citizens, business and our civilian and military public institutions – and how we can do so without creating an unacceptable obstruction to the legitimate digital investigation criminal suspects.
We will deeply ponder if personal freedom and public safety in the internet age are inevitably “either-or” choice, a zero-sum game, as most experts, activists and security agencies believe.
We’ll keep exploring the possibility that those 2 freedom and safety, are instead a solvable “both-or neither” challenge, whereby the uncompromising zero-trust technical and governance safeguards and paradigms that are needed to radically improve personal freedoms are the same that can make lawful access sufficiently resilient from abuse, and make our public security agencies most effective and accountable.
We’ll be challenging the status quo, with its deeply ingrained misconceptions, and in some cases outright deceptions

- 11.15 – CHALLENGE B: How can we achieve such ultra-high assurance IT while enabling legitimate and constitutional – no more, no less – lawful access? so it does not get abused or outlawed?
Can the same extreme technical and human processes safeguards that are needed to deliver ultra-high assurance also enable voluntary compliance to lawful access request – at least in some EU states – that overall reduce the risk of privacy rights abuse of end-users by anyone to levels that are radically or substantially lower than any of the other alternative secure IT systems which do not offer such voluntary processing?
Could or should such processes rely on a provider-managed voluntary data and/or key recovery scheme that is certified and overseen by primarily-non-governmental radically citizen-accountable, independent and competent international body? Could the inevitable added risk be essentially shifted from technical systems to in-person organizational processes?
