Dangerous myths about encryption are being increasingly used to justify laws that erode the basic foundation of trust on the Internet. It’s time to get the facts straight.

The Internet Society with the Center for Democracy & Technology, LGBT Tech, and the Open Technology Institute at New America will host a briefing to help you understand the day-to-day impact of encryption and how to ensure policies protect people, vulnerable communities, commerce and national security.

This open event will feature lunch and two panel sessions covering everything you need to know about encryption: the Technology of Encryption and The Human Side of Encryption. Experts will cover how encryption technology works, the implications of 'exceptional access' proposals, and the day-to-day impact of encryption on people and society. You'll also hear perspectives from marginalized communities that are sometimes left out of the recurring narrative.
