Beyond Encryption: Why We Can't Come Together on Security and Privacy—and the Catastrophes That Await If We Don’t
A panel of privacy and security experts will explore why the encryption controversy is only the tip of the iceberg of the security and privacy debate we should be having, and how years of partisan advocacy have eroded our privacy while doing almost nothing for our security. There are no easy answers, but with the right conversation we can change this disastrous course. Discuss the problem, the opportunity and the nature of the digital and physical dangers that are headed this way if we allow the current stalemate to continue.

As a journalist, Penn has written a series of articles for The San Francisco Chronicle based on visits to Iraq and Iran, and his interview with President Castro for The Nation was the first-ever with an international journalist. Penn’s latest story for Rolling Stone was based on an interview with then at large drug lord Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman Loera.
Penn's humanitarian work found him in New Orleans in the immediate aftermath of Hurricane Katrina and in earthquake-ravaged Haiti. Penn has devoted much of his time and resources over the last five years to the NGO he founded J/P Haitian Relief Organization (www.jphro.org) which currently employs approximately 350 predominantly Haitian staff. For his efforts, Penn has received numerous accolades including The Commander's Award for Service (US Army 82nd Airborne Division), Commendation of Excellence United States Southern Command, the 2012 Peace Summit Award at the 12th World Summit of Nobel Peace Laureates, and the International Humanitarian Service Award from the American Red Cross. Penn was also appointed Ambassador at Large for Haiti by President Michel Martelly.
