This international and interdisciplinary workshop is part of a series of events organized by the Horizon 2020 project CANVAS. The goal of CANVAS is to inform deciders and policy makers about issues at the intersection of ethics and cybersecurity by creating briefing packages, whitepapers, and materials for teaching (MOOC, reference curriculum, and a book). Our event brings together scholars and practitioners. This includes actors who need protection for themselves or for their organization as well as those who have to deal with the consequences of untraceability and online anonymity.
At the workshop computer scientists, legal professionals, journalists, and policy makers will share their experience and discuss what can or cannot be solved with technology and which ethical choices should be considered. Besides talks and plenty of time for discussion, there will be two sessions with hands-on operational security (OpSec) trainings for persons exposed to a high level of risk, such as journalists, lawyers, medical professionals, and activists. The outcomes of the workshop will serve as input for the deliverables of CANVAS.
