DataPrivacyDay2020
Communicating with our family, friends, and other relevant people of our lives in a private manner is the foundation of our democratic societies.
Yet, how can communication be private, if service providers can read our messages and share our data with other companies for profiling and marketing reasons?
How can communication be secure, if companies are obliged to build a backdoor so that law enforcement agencies can access our information at their will?
There is no easy answer! This is why we will discuss the importance of private messaging systems and solutions like end-to-end encryption. We will also analyze reasons against private communication, like security, crime-fighting, and legitimate commercial interests.
