CIS Cybersecurity Series (Part 3) - Eva Galperin

CIS interviews Eva Galperin, Global Policy Analyst at the Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF).

"It is a vital tool for speaking truth to power. Unless you are able to speak anonymously, you are not really free to espouse unpopular ideas to people who have the power to do bad things to do... I think the value of anonymous speech vastly outweighs the difficulties that you can sometimes get into because people can speak anonymously. And on the whole, I think anonymity is worth protecting." - Eva Galperin, Global Policy Analyst at EFF.
