At the event on Wednesday 7th October, Wales will discuss the current state and future of Internet privacy and online censorship. Famous for creating the world’s largest online encyclopaedia and for his controversial views on online freedom of speech, in this insightful speech, Jimmy will address the dangers of government snooping, the value of encryption, and the negative impact of cyber security failures on freedom of expression and democracy.

Bradley Maule-ffinch, IP Expo Europe’s director of strategy, said, ‘Jimmy has strong views on European regulations relating to Internet censorship and the impact this has on businesses, so we are very excited to hear him speak at this year’s IP Expo Europe.’

Wales is also expected to discuss the business impact of Edward Snowden’s NSA disclosures, as well as the UK government’s Investigatory Powers Bill, or ‘Snoopers’ Charter’, which calls for ISPs and mobile network operators to keep records of individual users’ browsing activity over a 12 month period.
Wales’ keynote will take place at 10am on Wednesday 7th October, in the IP Expo Europe keynote theatre, ExCeL London.
