Session teaser

This discussion on the interplay between security, privacy and openness on the Internet will build on Part I of the previous day in order to try to identify ‘win-win’ situations and to minimize trade-offs between these three objectives with a focus on specific European examples. This session will bring out issues that relate to e-commerce activities (such as fidelity programmes, e-banking etc), passport and other identity applications, expression of personal identities and management of personal profiles and behaviour online (connected to social networking sites, sites used for public rating or harassment of others like teacher ratings sites, “rotten neighbours”, online games, etc.). It will also deal with the question of cybercrime and responses to this challenge in Europe and elsewhere (cybercrime legislation, law enforcement, international cooperation, cooperation between law enforcement and service providers etc.): how can security be improved in order to enhance rather than threaten privacy and openness?
