25 Feb – CYBER SECURITY DAY 2017


Uppsala Association of International Affairs and Uppsala Forum on Democracy, Peace and Justice welcome you to Cyber Security Day!
Security policy is one of the most pressing issues when it comes to foreign affairs. With the digital development come new obstacles for keeping a country safe. A new type of warfare where other nations can jeopardize the democratic process – as with the US election, and private hacker groups that can have great impact. What is cyber security and how does it influence a country’s national security?
The day includes three happenings: a panel discussion and two lectures. Free lunch is included for those who sign up.
11:15 – 12:30 – Opening Panel Discussion: What is cyber security?

15:00-16:30 – Lecture: Sir David Ferbrache about cybercrime:
“Ruthless, Rational, Entrepreneurs – the changing face of cybercrime”: How does the world of cyber criminals work? Sir Ferbrache will give us an insight: Cyber criminals are driven by hard cash and they seek return on their investment. Therefore they make rational investment choices to develop new attack tools, select their targets and change techniques. Our security response often break their entrepreneurial and innovative approach in attempt to stop the threat posed to our digital economy.
