Net activist and former WikiLeaks spokesman Daniel Domscheit-Berg will provide his answer to “There’s More Outside The Box: Are We Properly Equipped For When The Digital Revolution Really Takes Off?” at it-sa 2017 on October 12 in Nuremberg, Germany. His special keynote on the third day of the exhibition will focus on the question of how IT security can help to cope successfully with the societal change that digitalization implies. Domscheit-Berg will talk about the importance of IT security in a society that is increasingly characterized by digital networking, and will highlight technical and social questions and questions of data protection law that arise in this connection.
Domscheit-Berg helped to build up WikiLeaks from 2007-2010, and was a spokesman for the platform. Today he works on projects relating to privacy, IT security and Open Access. His Special Keynote address will take place at 12:15 on Oct. 12 in Hall 10 in the M10 forum, one of four stages hosting some 320 lectures on IT security trends and solutions. Following his lecture, Domscheit-Berg will take questions from the public. Like all the forum lectures, the special keynote is free to exhibition visitors and exhibitors.
