LINE UP

Headliners

CloudFest draws celebrities, newsmakers, influencers, and experts from around the world in the fields that matter to us – technology, government, media, and beyond. They come to communicate the kinds of important insights into advancing technology and the democratic web that makes CloudFest one of the best content-driven technology events of the year. Here is the line-up for 2018 so far.

Max Schrems

Max Schrems

Max Schrems is an Austrian lawyer, author, and privacy activist. Notably recognized as the individual who filed a complaint against the European arm of Facebook to prohibit the further transfer of data to the United States, a privilege established via the EU Commission's Safe Harbour Agreement and one he claimed was in direct violation of EU privacy laws. His actions were the ultimate catalyst to the accords dismantling and served as an important voice in the creation of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR.) Schrems’ on-going fight to ensure data protection led him to found noyb, “none of your business,” an organization dedicated to closing the gap between privacy laws and the reality of corporate practice.

Edward Snowden

Edward Snowden

Edward Snowden has been called "The most wanted man in the world." The U.S. computer professional achieved international fame after disclosing in June 2013 thousands of classified documents that he acquired while working as an NSA contractor. Edward's leaked documents revealed numerous global surveillance programs, many of them run by the NSA and the Five Eyes with the cooperation of telecommunication companies and European governments. A subject of controversy, Snowden has been variously called a hero, a whistleblower, a dissident, a patriot and a traitor. Like never before, his disclosures have fueled debates over mass surveillance, government secrecy, and the balance between national security and information privacy. On June 9, four days after the press first exposed a secret NSA program based on his leaks, Edward Snowden made his identity public. On June 14, 2013, the U.S. Department of Justice charged him with two counts of violating the Espionage Act and theft of government property, punishable by up to 30 years in prison. Edward flew to Moscow, where he remained in the airport transit zone for 39 days, during which time he applied for asylum in 21 countries. On August 1, 2013, Russian authorities granted him asylum. He lives nowadays in an undisclosed location in Russia. (Source: Wikipedia.com) *virtually presenting via video conference
