Speaking at RightsCon 2022

From Monday, June 6 to Friday, June 10, 2022, RightsCon will take place entirely online, spanning multiple time zones, featuring a program of 350+ sessions with both live and asynchronous content.

Check out my talk, "Commercial Spyware, Data Brokers, and More - An Overview of Surveillance Technology Markets" will succinctly demystify various surveillance markets (e.g. mobile device spyware, location data brokers) funded by governments and highlight procurement and export/import policies that have minimized the use of these technologies. While many talks about surveillance technology focus on much-needed privacy regulation, this will focus exclusively on following the money.
