In 1984, George Orwell describes a dystopian society in which everything citizens do is monitored by the all-seeing eyes of Big Brother. Thirty years after 1984, we find ourselves surrounded by threats to our privacy. Is there anything to be done? And if so, what?

ICSI invites you to join us and our colleagues from academia and industry as we discuss privacy in the digital age. Please register on Eventbrite.
