Copyright doesn't sound like something connected to security—but it is. Everyone from security researchers to startups are impacted by copyright every day. Shahid Buttar from the Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF) will speak about serious changes in copyright law and what you need to know to ensure your digital rights online.
This special event unveils the new grassroots network, the Electronic Frontier Alliance (EFA), coming to Colorado. Uniting community and campus organizations across the U.S., the EFA will serve as a hub for activism and organizing along a spectrum of civil liberties and digital rights issues. SecureSet joined the EFA in April 2016.
