In this fireside chat, our moderator will lead a discussion with three technology sector champions of civil liberties and human rights, covering views from leading Silicon Valley companies and from the non-profit sector.  The group will discuss online security, privacy, encryption, censorship, free expression and countering violent extremism online.  Our guests will also touch on the key issues at stake in the Apple v. FBI matter and what these issues mean for start-up and Fortune 500 technology companies. Learn about our guests' careers in the private sector, civil society, government and academia and ask questions about the hottest topics in technology, innovation and privacy.
