About the Speaker

Dr. Constanze Kurz holds a doctorate in computer science and is the author and publisher of several books. Through her commitment to data protection as well as some sensational actions of Europe's largest hacker association "Chaos Computer Club" (short: CCC), Constanze Kurz became known nationwide.
Kurz volunteers as a spokesperson for the CCC, which describes itself as a mediator in the area of tension between technical and social developments. In her blogs, essays, and in her fortnightly column "Aus dem Maschinenraum" (2010-2019) in the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung, she draws attention to security gaps and monopolies in the field of new technologies, while at the same time pointing out democratic alternatives.
