This Summer School represents the interdisciplinary discussions of the NRW Research College SecHuman – Security for Humans in Cyberspace, condenses them into a four-day event and opens them to a broad audience.
Guided by top international European and US researchers, you will get a fresh look at modern cybersecurity from different perspectives:
An introductory workshop on Day 1 will provide you with tools for inter- and transdisciplinary work. After that, cybersecurity is introduced as a social, mediated and technical phenomenon.
Day 2 covers the quantification of security from the perspectives of cryptography, hardware reverse engineering and human aspects. Therefore, talks will be given by experts from these areas and interactive assignments will be provided to the participants.
Day 3 focuses on forensic linguistics as the interface between language, law and crime.
Finally, Day 4 investigates how privacy is at odds with both the data economy and user convenience – and if it is possible to overcome these conflicts. Business models of web and mobile apps often rely on monetization via ads specifically targeted at the user’s interests. On the other hand, users can benefit if the service offers improved usability and personalization based on their habits and preferences.
