With only seven days separating us between now and Web Summit 2020 we've decided to throwback to one of most popular talks from last year's Web Summit with Edward Snowden
Edward Snowden, the man who risked everything to expose the US government’s system of mass surveillance.
A name familiar to us all, we know the actions which have led him to living a life in hiding. But how much do we really know about the background and motivations which led him to take these seismic societal actions?
Edward will go into detail about the story that has shaped his life, including how he helped to build that system and what motivated him to try to bring it down.
