Whether discussing encryption policy or various types of surveillance, the question is often posed as "security versus privacy."

In fact, in a world of ubiquitous surveillance and borderless wars, those conflicts are really conflicts over differing notions of security. In this talk " Securing Us: How the Issue Isn't Really Security versus Privacy After All", Susan Landau will focus on two topics:
