With around 60 participants, the Privacy vs. Security Panel Discussion was a huge success!
We were joined by four of the most influential experts on the topics of security, human rights, and cyber in the Netherlands, and the participants actively engaged in the discussion. We quickly discovered the wickedness of the problem posed by the mobilization of data by government agencies. The trade-off between national security and personal privacy was not as black and white as it seemed and we discussed how important it is to find the right balance and the necessary checks and balances to control the abundance of data.
The HonEURs Association would like to thank everyone that joined the discussion and especially Pieter Bindt, Quirine Eijkman, Bernold Nieuwesteeg, and Liesbeth Vink for sharing their opinions on this complex discussion and for engaging with the participants.
