Fabio Ghioni (Independent Advisor to various MNCs and Government Organizations)

Presentation Title: The biggest brother
Presentation Abstract:

Fabio Ghioni with Roberto Preatoni will present an overview about the ongoings in matters of digital and non-digital freedom. This paper will deal with how PSYOPs (Psychological Operations) are nowadays fully backed up by technological means, how western governments are abusing it and how western democracies are suffering from it. From the dream of a technology meant to ease lives and the nightmare of technologies used to enchain the users: from RFID-ed passports to laser printer tracebacks.

The question remains: Can the hacker movement raise a stand and fight against this? Is the hacker community credible and reliable as it is pictured by the current media coverage?
