DESCRIPTION: We are continuously exposed, in our private digital lives, by our own disclosures of personal information, by the applications we use making use of our data stored on our mobile, other devices or even ‘in the cloud’, and by agents – both for economic and other purposes who hack into corporate data. Our exposure will only continue to grow as the number and variety of wearable devices, smart sensors, and increasingly sophisticated applications communicate and make use of and tie disparate data together.

No where else is the concern surrounding on-line data and digital privacy as high as in Europe. Germany is a ‘standard bearer’ for these issues and the protections that enable data safety and protection. In Germany, Deutsche Telekom, has both policies and practices that provide best in class user data safeguards and privacy. In the US, Mozilla stands out as a long time, staunch advocate for data privacy, implementing safeguards in their Firefox browser and OS to further the overall goals of user privacy.

Together, Deutsche Telekom and Mozilla are hosting a one day privacy symposium during which speakers from startups, W3C, GSMA, members of the Hacker Community as well as the Academia will discuss policy and practices in security, on-line anonymity, user data protection in both panel discussions and speaker presentations.
