On Monday we organised the eighth Scrambling for Safety conference to help inform debate about the implementation of the Regulation of Investigatory Powers Act. There was press coverage by the BBC and silicon.com; you can find the speakers’ slides here. (Video of the talks should appear in due course.) The aim was to help people respond to Home Office consultations on access to keys and on communications data.

    So where are we with this? :-) , are you chaps contributing to the Parlimentary Comittee on Personal Internet security? Neo-conservitism seems to be the biggest threat to civil liberties whatever those may be.

    You’ll mean the House of Lords Select Committee on Science and Technology…

    … which the Security Group (and indeed FIPR) are very well aware of. The deadline is the 23rd October 2006.
