On Friday, South by Southwest added a few more featured speakers to its Interactive lineup as well as a panel related to the recent face off between Apple and the FBI over iPhone encryption.
The panel, called, “It’s Not About an iPhone: Fixing the Encryption Mess” happens 3:30 p.m. Tuesday, March 15 in Ballroom D of the Austin Convention Center and will be moderated by CNBC’s Kayla Tausche.
Here’s the panel description:
The relationship between the government, tech, and corporations was broken well before the iPhone encryption fight. Working within a legal framework designed for telcos in the 20th century, the government has had to improvise in ways that antagonized its potential partners in the tech and corporate world.
We NEED this relationship to be fixed in a way that both allows the government to protect us, while also protecting our privacy, and keeping corporations safe from potential hackers. This means passing new laws, changing current government practices, and building trust across the spectrum.
In this session we’ll hear from Obama campaign and admin advisor Michael Slaby, IBM’s global threat head Charles Henderson, and corporate security expert Misha Govshteyn on how we got here and what it will take to fix this mess.
