Do you want to find out about current EU laws on data protection and privacy? Do you want to discuss how to minimize your digital footprint? Then come to the next CryptoParty!

There is a new EU data protection legislation, GDPR, that asserts giving new protections to individuals. But is the legal framework enough to protect individuals? How do you actually make use of your data protection rights? Amelia Andersdotter, a member of the Swedish Pirate Party and former member of the European Parliament, will suggest some practical methods to protect personal data in spite of powerful companies and governments.

Afterwards we will discuss topics of your interest, like anonymous surfing, mobile security, encrypted instant messaging, and more in small groups. Bring your own laptop/smartphone if you want to try the presented tools right away.

The ACM-W student chapter is sponsoring food, so please sign up if you want some.
