More from this event →

Nico Sell — hacker, founder of Wickr and privacy advocate — discusses how privacy will become an increasingly valued and sought-after status. Privacy concerns extend far beyond those raised by Edward Snowden's distribution of National Security Agency materials; they relate to our use of credit cards, social media and search engines. This session is geared toward giving us the basics of privacy issues to be better informed about protecting our communications and our sources.
