About the Workshop:

Online terrorist communication has driven concerns that violent extremist groups/individuals have advanced from disseminating propaganda on the web to conducting multi-level outreach activities and possibly planning cyber-based attacks. While the threat of cyber terrorism seems impending, it also highlights a range of potential cyber-threats to national security that needs to be addressed fairly quickly. They include criminal usage of web-based applications for financial fraud, the pilferage of private/personal information (e.g. social security password, email and bank accounts) especially through hacking and the crippling of key central servers (e.g. shipping and flight routes control systems).

Cyber security as a strategy and public discourse requires one to undertake a whole-of-society and multidisciplinary approach. In this connection, this workshop was organised with the objective of considering: i) the range of potential cyber-threats to national security; ii) cyber-threat mitigation strategies; iii) real-world examples of how existing info-communication infrastructure have been hardened against cyber-attack; and iv) the way forward for cyber-security management, from a whole-of-society and multidisciplinary perspective.  

Participation at the meeting is strictly by invitation and is free-of-charge for all participants .
