For our first The Next Generation (TNG) event back after summer we're excited to host Big Brother Watch's Renate Samson on 'why we should oppose any attempt to undermine encryption'.
With Theresa May still determined to pass new anti-terror laws, encryption is a big issue and one Renate is extremely qualified to speak on. Renate has been the Chief Executive of Big Brother Watch since 2014. Since joining she has overseen their work on the Investigatory Powers Bill, data sharing, big data, surveillance cameras and issues regarding the internet of things.
Before joining Big Brother Watch, she she was Chief of Staff to Rt Hon David Davis MP with whom she worked for five years, focusing on his civil liberties campaigns.
The Next Generation (TNG) is the Adam Smith Institute’s network for young classical liberals and libertarians. Unfortunately we have limited space, so the event is reserved for under 30s.
As ever, there will be complimentary red and white wine on offer.
Please don't turn up before 6pm, as we will not be able to let you in. We hope you can make it.
