**Details:
Earlier this week, sniffmap.telcomap.org estimated that around 60% of all South African internet traffic passes through nodes known to be monitored by one of the Five Eyes. We often hear that South Africa’s own security services are even more invasive - although little is ever proved or written down about their activities. Perhaps we just like it that way? Hear from speakers Vinayak Bhardwaj, the Advocacy Coordinator of M&G Centre for Investigative Journalism, ThoughtWorks’ Quintis Venter, and Paul Jacobson of Web•Tech•Law.
