SERENE-RISC Spring 2017 Workshop

Montreal (Qc)
Wednesday, April 26, 2017 at 8:00 AM to Thursday, April 27, 2017 at 14:00 PM

Cybercrime is an issue that predates the wave of recent concern, beginning with the inception of computers and computer networks. Past research has shown an evolution in cybercrime from a 'hacking for fun' to a 'hacking for profit' mentality somewhere in the 1990s, and recently `hacking for a cause' has positioned itself to blur the line between vigilantism and civic disobedience.

The SERENE-RISC Spring 2017 SERENE-RISC Workshop will seek to explore all things branded cybercrime, from the motivations and mentality of those involved, to actual operations, to the shifting social response and the legal definitions of cybercrime in domains ranging from online fraud, cryptocurrencies, Internet of Things (IoT), botnets, big data, privacy, and the publication of confidential documents. Panels will feature presenters from the public sector, universities, attorneys (both prosecution and defense) and law enforcement. A member of the executive committee of the Ville de Montréal will also be present.

The event will takplace in downtown Montreal and will be primarily in English.
