In this EFA Talks we discuss the many dimensions of mass surveillance from the cashless society to immunity passports.
What would a cashless society look like? Can privacy survive with this constant, ever-growing push for total surveillance ? Can democracy even exist?

Electronic Frontiers Australia welcomes Malcolm Crompton and Nijole Naujokas as guest speaker to EFA Talks… an online lecture series—featuring Angus Murray, chair of EFA’s policy committee and hosted by Rita Mac, vice chair EFA.
Mass surveillance takes many forms: everything from location tracking, financial surveillance, and energy consumption patterns to digital identities and the immunity passport. It seems impossible to move through the modern world without someone watching your every move.
Join Malcolm, Nijole and Angus to discuss what this means.
