C2021 organisers have put in place a number of measures to protect the information of participants, starting with the use of personalised identifiers to control access to the conference platform. Similarly, a different link will be used for each session, with a systematic end of transmission scheduled at the end of the session.
In order to foster open discussions, networking events will not be recorded and the C2021 Virtual Code of Conduct prohibits individual recordings. Any participant who does not respect this code will be removed from the conference.
You are also encouraged to take a few precautions to protect your personal information. This includes ensuring that you are using the most up-to-date version of your video conferencing software. When deciding which details to include in your visible conference delegate profile, or whether to show your picture or home/office background when presenting, take the time to weigh the risks of revealing personal details against the benefits of making yourself known to potential new colleagues or clients. The conference platform offers dedicated spaces to meet and exchange ideas with fellow delegates. It will be up to you to decide whether to exchange personal contact information to continue your conversations beyond the C2021 experience.
The C2021 privacy considerations page offers several more suggestions for protecting your data privacy during the conference. Go check it out!
