-|630pm|[[https://​twitter.com/​carlynyst|Carly Kind]]|Biometric technologies,​ NGOs, and humanitarian interventions - talk + Q&​A|With the numbers of refugees and asylum seekers continually growing, and international foreign aid shrinking, humanitarian and refugee assistance organisations are under more pressure than ever to improve the accuracy and effectiveness of their interventions. Biometric technologies are being touted as a solution to this problem, accompanied by claims that they can decrease fraud and establish the veracity of asylum claims. But a critical analysis of biometrics show that such claims are overblown, and are often outweighed by the significant negative implications of biometrics for individual privacy and autonomy. Carly will explore some of these issues with reference to 2018 review she produced with The Engine Room for Oxfam on the use of biometrics in the humanitarian sector.|+
-|700pm|[[https://​twitter.com/​g__ferris|Griff Ferris]]|The State of Biometrics |Do you know how the government is using your biometrics to track and identify you? Find out how several police forces across the UK have been targeting and tracking people using their facial biometrics, and a what happened when a government department took hundreds of thousands of people'​s voice biometrics over the phone without their knowledge - and how hundreds of thousands reasserted their right to privacy.| +^Contact^Medium^Link

-===== About ===== +
- +
-==== Why CryptoParty?​ ==== +
- +
-Privacy is the space in which ideas are developed, to retreat into whenever you want. This space is not only physical but digital as well. Governments and companies don't want to respect that so we become active ourselves. +
- +
-==== What is a CryptoParty?​ ==== +
- +
-CryptoParties are free and open for everyone, but especially those without prior knowledge, who haven'​t yet attended one. +
- +
-CryptoParty is a decentralized movement with events happening all over the world. The goal is to pass on knowledge about protecting yourself in the digital space. This can include encrypted communication,​ preventing being tracked while browsing the web and general security advice for computers and smartphones. +
- +
-To try the programs and apps at the CryptoParty bring your laptop or smartphone. +
