W3C & ANU Future of the Web: Who is managing your privacy and identity on the Web


People are increasingly turning to online services offered through the Web for performing various functions.  This includes shopping, banking, travel booking or even accessing various government services and doing civic activities like voting.  This means that private information is being shared on the Web all the time.  How can we ensure that the right measures are in place for protecting the private information of individuals? Who is managing your privacy and identity on the Web? What should you be aware of?

This roadshow explores the various challenges and progress made in the area of privacy and identity on the Web and the underpinning standards framework needed to protect private data.  You will hear from leading experts in the field on how various challenges are being tackled.
