FYI, the UN is hosting a conference on "InfoSec" from June 16-17 in New York.
Interesting that the UN is giving its name to this "information security"
conference. I wonder if privacy and civil liberties groups will be allowed
to attend? It would be nice to get a more balanced dialogue on the
challenges of enforcing "cyber-crimes" versus protecting people's rights
to privacy and free exchange of information.
