Our second keynote speaker for LCA2020 is Lizzie O'Shea.

Lizzie is a lawyer, writer, and broadcaster with a keen interest in Open 
She believes Open Source rebalances power in favour of the user by 
security by design, rather than imposing a requirement of trust in 
where users are not empowered.

Lizzie's keynote will be an open discussion of the encryption laws in 
and an insight into, what she likes to call, the sausage making factory 
that is
Canberra. Delegates will gain an understanding of technological and 
digital rights
issues are discussed in parliament and how introducing a Human Rights 
Act in
Australia could have a positive impact in this space.
