Summer School: Social Aspects of Cyber Security Risk

April 19, 2016

Cyber security is a truly interdisciplinary field of study that is driven by complex, real-world challenges. Because of its historical associations, the field tends to be annexed as a technological concern, but increasingly governments and organisations are recognising that cyber security risk is socially and politically constructed. This complexity makes identifying and analysing cyber security risks a significant challenge for all aspects of governance. This Summer School seeks to explore these challenges through a combination of high profile talks on the social aspects of cyber security risks and hands-on workshops to transfer a range of modelling and analytical skills innovated specifically for the cyber security terrain. The speakers will come from a range of academic disciplines including law, geography, sociology, politics and international relations, information systems and information security.  This Summer School encourages registrations from PhD students and postdoctoral researchers studying the social aspects of cyber security risk. This Summer School also encourages registrations from practitioners working on real-world cyber security risk problems. 20th – 23rd of June 2016 (inclusive)Location: Royal Holloway University of London, Egham, UK Organisers: Lizzie Coles-Kemp (Royal Holloway University of London) and Peter Hall (Central St Martins University of the Arts London) Further details and registration details: http://summerschool2016.trespass-project.eu/
