The social side of cybersafety
This event would focus on raising awareness of the role of the social sciences in understanding and addressing emerging problems in the field of cybercrime. Key to this event is the human element: cybercrime is all too often thought of as mostly a technical or IT issue. Yet, people are the perpetrators and victims, each with their own knowledges, perceptions, motivations, and abilities that impact on both offending and victimization. By taking an interactive approach the event will highlight the human and social components of cybercrime, and the benefits of approaching the problem from a social science perspective. It will aim to show participants that cybersecurity and cybersafety are issues that we all can contribute to, no matter the level of technical know-how.
This event has been postponed until further notice.
