Is There an Innovation Party?

Sunday, March 13
11:00AM - 12:00PM

Omni Downtown
Capital Ballroom
700 San Jacinto Blvd

The “Crypto Wars” of the 90s. China’s Green Dam. Snowden and the NSA. Government requests for access to source code. Government requirements to use local encryption algorithms. The “Going Dark” debate. Data localization requirements. Safe Harbor, Schrems, and the Privacy Shield. The Apple San Bernardino case.

All these implicate issues of security, privacy, and innovation. More fundamentally, they all raise different aspects of a larger more pervasive issue facing the tech sector – the proper scope of government authority to request access to or modify companies’ technologies, services, data, and intellectual property.
