"Sea of Data"

What the world will look like this October is hard for us to predict. What we can do is organize an online PrivacyWeek that lives up to the claim of being a safe harbor and compass for anyone who find themselves lost in the sea of data.

about us

What is Privacy-Week?

Low Barrier
Privacy Week is a seven day event pledged to offering low threshhold access to knowledge by offering a platform for knowledge exchange between experts and the interested public.

Honorary Capacity
All of us from the Chaos Computer Club are volunteering, as is the Club's tradition, and have been working in our free time to offer you, as every year, this full week of talks, workshops, art projects and discussion rounds. Many take the week off, and when we started six years ago they would travel extra to Vienna just to be able to help. 2020 as well as 2021 we're sitting in front of our screen scattered all over Europe, but we're still meeting in our online headquarter to offer this full fledged PrivacyWeek.

Non Profit
Donations from small organizations as well as from private donors enable us to offer access to this years PrivacyWeek completly free for all.

Beyond PrivacyWeek
Most of our talks and discussion panles will be available after the event under CC-BY-0 on the internet.

We <3 Privacy
