Vocativ partners with IEF for The Snowden Effect Series

Kevin Collier to moderate Surveillance panel

The Internet Education Foundation is proud to partner with Vocativ, a cutting edge media and technology company, for the Snowden Effect series of events. This media partnership will lead to significant exposure for both the series and the tech policy issues raised by it. In addition, Kevin Collier, Vocativ’s Sr. Privacy and Security reporter, will be moderating our final Snowden Effect event on October 28th covering government surveillance.

The Snowden Effect Series tackles three distinct but inter-related technology policy issues that have been thrust into the spotlight since Edward Snowden’s 2013 revelations. Each event is hosted by one of three IEF projects. The first event on Data Localization, “What Nationality is Your Data?” was hosted by State of the Net. The second, on corporate transparency and subpoena compliance, “The Changing Landscape of Subpoenas, Transparency and Trust” was co-hosted by the Internet Law and Policy Foundry and New America’s Open Technology Institute, while our final event, dealing with government surveillance, “The Future of Surveillance Laws, One Year After USA FREEDOM”, will be hosted by the Congressional Internet Caucus Advisory Committee.
