Privacy Technology Executive Briefing

Dubrovnik (Cavtat), Croatia     

2 June - 3 June 2005

Privacy and anonymity are increasingly important in the online world. Corporations, governments, and other organizations are realizing and exploiting their power to track users and their behavior, and restrict the ability to publish or retrieve documents. Approaches to protecting individuals, groups, but also companies and governments from such profiling and censorship include decentralization, encryption, distributed trust, and automated policy disclosure.

This 1st executive session welcomes data protection commissioners, government officials, non-government organization members, privacy technology vendors, privacy consultants,  and privacy researchers to discuss the latest  initiatives and trends in data protection.
