Child Protection in an Age of End-to-End Encryption

October 13, 2023 @ 9:00 am 11:00 am PDT

This event is a lunch and learn style webinar on October 13, 2023 from 12-2 pm Eastern. The major topic is End-to-End Encryption (E2EE): What is it? Why do we need it? Does removing encryption actually harm kids instead of keeping them safe?

Much public policy lately has focused on banning E2EE in the name of child protection. Will this actually work or are there better ways to make the internet a safer place for our children?

Come to this event, sponsored by Prostasia Foundation, to learn more about encryption, how we use it in child protection, and leave with the tools necessary to enjoy your digital life safely.

Speakers include:

  • Dr. Gilian Tenbergen – Executive Director, Prostasia Foundation
  • Aaron Weiss – Owner and Director, Forensic Recovery, LLC
  • Tom Thorley – Advocate, Speaker, Technologist, GIFCT
  • Alexa Sheldon – Online Safety Associate, PUBLIC
