“The developments over the last year have shown the world how fundamental the individual right to privacy is to democracy,” says Dr. Steven Waterhouse, Co-founder and CEO of Orchid. “I’m proud to announce Priv8, a conference dedicated to sharing information that will help people all over the world defend their human right to privacy.”

“The importance of digital privacy has never been more central to the global conversation and to democracy in general. I’m proud to share my knowledge at Priv8 and to help people preserve and protect this essential human right,” said Cindy Cohn, Executive Director, Electronic Frontier Foundation

The COVID-19 pandemic has put digital privacy at the forefront of the global conversation and Priv8 will bring experts from governments, corporations and NGOs together to provide insights in the future of privacy in the digital age. The keynotes and panels will cover everything from encryption, decentralization, the death of cash and the rise of financial surveillance as well as how to flatten the curve and contain the surveillance virus. Attendees can expect to learn about how the pandemic has shifted the conversation on digital privacy, what developments experts will be focused on in 2021 and how regular people can join the fight for freedom while protecting their rights. The summit is hosted by Orchid, the decentralized, crypto-powered VPN of choice when privacy matters most.
