Privacy First organises debate on cyber security
On 22 October next, our next "theme party" will take place at the offices of Stichting Privacy First in the former Volkskrant building on Wibautstraat in Amsterdam. As a follow-up to the recent lecture by the Head of the AIVD, we have Wil van Gemert invited to elaborate on the topic of cyber security. Mr Van Gemert is Director of Cyber Security of the National Coordinator for Counterterrorism and Security and will deliver a lecture for us on the intersection of security and privacy in cyberspace. What exactly does cyber security entail and what are the current challenges and dilemmas? What is the role of the government with regard to cyber security developments? And how can the balance between privacy and security be found? Investigative journalist Brenno de Winter acts as moderator during the evening. During the lecture, there will be plenty of room for questions and discussion with the audience. After this, we will make our way to the drink in café-restaurant Canvas with music by DJ Wong featuring DJ Broky B.
