Politics of Internet Security
If you have a question about this talk, please contact Saar Drimer.
Based on his experience dealing with technology issues as a Member of Parliament, Richard will describe the UK political perspective on internet security. Using Parliamentary material, he will demonstrate that politicians are primarily concerned about the effects of “bad” content rather than threats to the technology infrastructure. And he will show how there is an increasing demand to use technical methods to limit access to content. This will include an analysis of the political events following a high-profile murder which has led to measures to ban access to violent pornography via the internet which the government has said it intends to introduce.
