Many thousands of people worldwide are working to make movies and shows for Netflix. They include writers, directors, actors, crew members, editors, animators, subtitlers, and many more. As a newcomer to the century-old business of movie making, Netflix is looking for new ways to help these talented professionals put their best work on the screen. However the technologies we’re developing come with important security needs. Scripts, prerelease content, and personal data must all be managed efficiently and securely. In this presentation, Netflixers working at the frontier of a new era of movie making will talk about how we are meeting these technological and security challenges.

A Conversation about Consent: Addressing Intimate Partner Surveillance and Violence

7:00 pm–8:00 pm, Waterfront AB Room
Sponsored by Kaspersky and Coalition Against Stalkerware

Speakers: Laura-Kate Bernstein, Senior Counsel, Computer Crime and Intellectual Property Section, U.S. Department of Justice; Eva Galperin, Director of Cybersecurity, Electronic Frontier Foundation; Kevin Roundy, Technical Director, NortonLifeLock Research Group; David Ruiz, Online Privacy Writer, Malwarebytes; Corbin Streett, MSW, Technology Safety Specialist, Safety Net Project, National Network to End Domestic Violence; and Kim Zetter, award-winning investigative journalist, and author of Countdown to Zero Day: Stuxnet and the Launch of the First Digital Weapon.

Please join us for a conversation about how online tools can perpetuate harassment, stalking, abuse, and violence. And, most importantly, the role of Silicon Valley technologists and companies in addressing the intimate partner threat model. Refreshments provided.

Throughout the hour, speakers will tackle several questions:

  • What is the threat model of an intimate partner?
  • Why have the threats to this vulnerable community been traditionally ignored?
  • Why is it difficult to detect and mitigate such threats?
  • What does "designing for consent" look like?

Discussion topics include

  • How can we define stalkerware and distinguish it from legitimate tracking/monitoring software?
  • What is the impact of stalkerware on domestic violence victims and survivors and other vulnerable populations?
  • What is the current legal/regulatory framework regarding the development, sale, and use of stalkerware?
  • What is the current IT security industry practice regarding stalkerware and where is industry going?
