Communications surveillance is now a global business. Over the past three decades, law enforcement and national security agencies have worked with the private sector to ensure that all new forms of communications are capable of being monitored. A range of new international legal agreements provide the foundation for this activity.
Who are the key players in this new industry? What mechanisms are being developed to build surveillance into the architecture of communications? What forms of technology are being used to intercept communications - and to resist interception?
This unique one-day conference will explore these technical and legal questions, and provide a public forum for open discussion.
