Cologne – WorldHostingDays, the world’s largest series of events for the hosting and cloud service market, today announced that Sarah Harrison and Edward Snowden will join this year’s conference as keynote speakers. Both will take part in a Q&A session about “The future of the internet and how Hosting companies and Cloud providers should deal with surveillance.” It will be the first time ever that Harrison and Snowden perform a speaking engagement at a conference together.

Like never before, the disclosure of extensive surveillance activities of U.S. secret services, with their Five Eyes partners, raised awareness for security of web based data. It crashed worldwide business confidence in Cloud and Hosting solutions. As policy makers have failed since to restore confidence in the international infrastructure market beyond platitudes, infrastructure providers have struggled hard to respond to their customers’ concerns.

During its most important convention worldwide with more than 6,000 visitors expected from some 85 countries, the industry will expect a straightforward and programmatic discussion between Sarah Harrison and Edward Snowden. As digital surveillance is a daily real life problem for many providers, the topic has increasingly roused concerns and alertness. The most outstanding protagonists for a free internet are expected to give hints, on what hosting and cloud providers can do to regain trust and credibility and how to meet businesses’ as well as consumers’ expectations concerning privacy of their cloud activities. Furthermore, Sarah and Edward will give their opinion on how successful the big players like Google, AWS and Yahoo distance themselves from the far-reaching powers of the secret service sector.

Sarah Harrison will join the conference on stage. Edward Snowden will participate live broadcasted via virtual chat. 2015 takes place March 24th to 26th at Europa-Park in Rust, Germany. Free registration is possible until March 1stwith voucher code LX8K7XL at
