PyCon Ireland 2013 - Lynn Root Keynote (Sunday)

PRISM-as-a-Service: Not Subject to American Law
By Lynn Root (twitter.com/roguelynn)

X-as-a-Service products are integral in the U.S. tech industry with their ability to take the pain out of server configuration, maintenance, provisioning, data storage and other aspects of running a server. With the recent outing of PRISM, a clandestine national security electronic surveillance program, the next desirable IT feature is "not subject to American law." How can we leverage cloud-based software while maintaining privacy?

This talk is a look at what exactly PRISM is, how PRISM affects cloud services, and how best to approach securing data and preserving privacy within the cloud.

Thanks for coming to the talks last night.

I wasn't at the meetup, but we will have to start recording these talks
again at some stage.

This mailing list would be the best to post these kind of questions. I'll
drop a message at meetup that we have a pythonie mailing list as well.

Also where is the best place to post these kind of questions, here,
