Friday, 31st March 2017, last day of RightsCon in Brussels.

RightsCon in Brussels has been a great event that "bring(s) together 1,200+ attendees from 80 countries with 500+ organisations, tech companies, universities, startups, and governments represented." In order to keep the RIPE community informed, I have been taking an active part in this event, and I have been reporting back in the series of articles. Friday is the last day. It is as full of content as the usual, so it is very hard to decide which sessions to follow.
