Ethical Thinking in Cyber Space Workshop

The Colloquium for Information Systems Security Education

New Orleans, LA, June 11, 2018
Registration has closed.

Cybersecurity response to a range of events including malicious hacking all the way up through state sponsored cyber-attacks positions cybersecurity professionals to face ever increasing ethical dilemmas. How best can we as educators prepare our students to meet these evolving ethical challenges? To address this increasing concern, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign are hosting a workshop at CISSE 2018 with sponsorship from the U.S. National Security Agency.

Our goals for the workshop are to inspire ethical inquiry in cybersecurity that can foster a culture of dialogue and ethical engagement for the field of cybersecurity and to get your feedback on a graduate level cybersecurity ethics curriculum developed and piloted at the University of Illinois. We will share our curricular materials with you and we are interested in your ideas for adapting the curriculum to other contexts (K-12, community college/undergraduate, and professional). We are interested to know what you see as the most pressing ethical issues facing cybersecurity and would like to think together about how to move forward with this initiative.

The event is being hosted in conjunction with the The Colloquium for Information Systems Security Education (CISSE) and is available to all CISSE attendees.
