GI-Webinar: Fehlinformation im Netz und Attribution von Cyberangriffen

17. July 2024

Research results in the field of cyber security can usually be used for both civilian and military purposes, which obviously results in a dual-use problem. In addition, the increasing use of AI systems also raises ethical questions in the field of cyber security and in the security sector in general. The use of published research results and open source technologies for criminal and terrorist purposes cannot be ruled out either. For example, knowledge of state-of-the-art protection technologies could be used by adversaries to develop new strategies to circumvent them, and the protection options themselves could be further developed without making them available to the general public.

The aim of the ELSI Webtalks (Ethics, Legal and Social Implications) is a scientifically driven discourse on these issues. The webtalks are organised by the Gesellschaft für Informatik (GI) e.V. in cooperation with the SOVEREIGN research project, which has been funded by the Federal Cyber Agency since 2023.

The first GI webinar focussed on the topics of misinformation on the internet and attribution of cyber attacks. These are important topics that we are addressing as part of our SOVEREIGN research project. Many thanks to our great speakers Prof. Dr. Judith Simon and Marit Hansen for their contributions, to Nikolas Becker from the Gesellschaft für Informatik (GI) for moderating and to Dr. André Müller from the Agentur für Innovation in der Cybersicherheit GmbH (Cyberagentur) for the introductory words.

First webinar on 17 July 2024 on the topic of misinformation on the internet and attribution of cyber attacks.
