Press release

The Eindhoven Institute for the Protection of Systems and Information
(Ei/PSI) organizes a 1-day event on Security in Times of Surveillance
on Thursday, 26 May 2016. 

The event features invited talks covering technical as well as legal  
and political aspects of security and surveillance and will close with 
a screening of A Good American, a film about the NSA whistle-blower 
Bill Binney. It will take place in the Blauwe Zaal at the Technische 
Universiteit Eindhoven.

"For the third year in a row we have an exciting program including
new threats and technological advances for protection" said Prof. 
Tanja Lange, the main organizer of the event. "The political 
landscape in Europe is changing: The Court of Justice of the European 
Union declared the EU-US safe-harbor agreement invalid and the 
Dutch government came out in support of strong encryption. At the 
same time some politicians exploit the Paris and Brussels attacks to 
advance anti-encryption agendas and government-sponsored hacking is
spiraling out of control."

The invited speakers include:
* Roger Dingledine, Tor project
* Rachel Greenstadt, Drexel University
* Nadia Heninger, University of Pennsylvania
* Andreas Hülsing, Technische Universiteit Eindhoven
* Frederic Jacobs, EPFL
* Bart Preneel, KU Leuven
* Ton Siedsma, Bits of Freedom 
Registration is free but the number of participants is limited. Please 
register before 20 May 2016.
