The SERENE-RISC 2015 Spring Workshop will take place in Ottawa on April 22 and 23. The workshop theme is “Cybersecurity futures: Toward a healthy digital ecosystem”. It aims to move beyond the usual catastrophic discourse on the impending breakdown of critical infrastructures provoked by malicious actors and state-sponsored attacks. Instead, we would like to frame the discussion around a more optimistic outlook trying to imagine what cybersecurity might look like ten years down the road if technologies, norms and policies align to produce a liberal, healthy and resilient digital ecosystem. What conditions need to be met to achieve this objective and what knowledge is needed to do so?
The keynote speaker, Christopher Soghoian from the American Civil Liberties Union, is confirmed for the opening session. SERENE-RISC is expecting an excellent lineup of speakers who will present during five complimentary sessions over the two days.
Registration is free and can be done online. For more information, or to register, visit the SERENE-RISC site.
