Decrypting the encryption debate: How to ensure public safety with a privacy-preserving and secure Internet?

If weakening encryption through legislation or judicial orders is not the right solution, are there other ways to reconcile privacy, security and public safety? How can policymakers ensure a coherent approach on apparently divergent policy objectives? What can the EU do to promote encryption? Can government agencies develop new investigative techniques without undermining encryption?

Zero-trust cloud week – data protection in the cloud

Today, it’s often more cost-effective to host services in the cloud instead of in its own premises. But how protected is our sensitive data in the cloud? We readily encrypt data in storage and protect it while in transit. But what about when data is “in use”? It is a legitimate concern in increasingly cloud-dominated infrastructures. Moreover, how to make sense of the different laws governing the sensitive data?

During this week we will explore how privacy-enhancing computation technologies complement a zero-trust strategy by addressing the vulnerability of data in use in the cloud. We will also discuss the legal framework which is required to balance economical interest of companies with the individual’s data privacy concerns.

Dependencies in Modern IT Systems

The variety of dependencies in modern IT systems provides several advantages, but also has a strong impact on the security and resilience of these systems. A number of recent incidents, such as the “SolarWinds attack” on US governmental agencies, underline the difficulty of securing systems that are composed of various apparently independent components.

How aware are organisations of their IT dependencies? How do they manage them? How are dependencies taken into account in the decision process? The goal of this workshop is to gather experiences, and to present approaches that tackle these dependency issues, from theoretical and practical points of view.

This event is organized by the Swiss Support Center for Cybersecurity (SSCC), in collaboration with the Center for Digital Trust (C4DT) at EPFL and the Zurich Information Security Center (ZISC) at ETHZ.

EPFL/C4DT Panel – Should We Trust Digital Immunity Passports?

There is much debate about the use of digital immunity passports as a response to the COVID-19 pandemic. Such digital tools to certify immunity could help spur economic recovery, but raise ethical and privacy concerns. How to build trust in such a solution? What elements make them interoperable among countries? How is people’s data related to their immunity status governed?

A panel of prominent specialists will discuss these and other questions from 4 different angles – ethical, business, political/governance and scientific – during a two-hour moderated discussion.
