Does Absolute Power Corrupt Absolutely? – A Panel Discussion on PRISM & Cloud Security

While at the Dublin Web Summit, Dyn CEO Jeremy Hitchcock spoke on a panel of experts about a subject he’s passionate about, and one that is relevant to all Internet users around the globe: the benefits of an open, universal, and free Internet.

The panel titled “PRISM & Cloud Security: Does Absolute Power Corrupt Absolutely” brought together Eugene Kaspersky of Kaspersky Lab, Matthew Prince of CloudFlare, Paul Lynch of Another 9, and Jeremy Hitchcock of Dyn. The conversation spanned topics from the expectation of privacy on the Internet to the role governments should and should not play in the balance between freedom & security online.

Watch the video below that addresses the issues we face now & in the future as individuals and as an industry at large, and find out why many say it’s time for the tech world to take a collective stand.

To learn more about about Jeremy’s view on the balance between freedom and control as well as how we as an industry must work together to implement a cross border, cross company collective action, check out his recent blog post.

As stakeholders in a successful Internet it is up to us to create an open dialogue surrounding these topics. In that vein we encourage you to share this panel as well as your thoughts on any of these points. We’d love to hear from you via social media and understand what issues are important to you.
