Organised by:
Department Values, Technology & innovation (VTI) of Delft University of Technology and The Institute of Security and Global Affairs (ISGA) of Leiden University

This workshop is organized as part of the European project CANVAS by the Department Values, Technology & innovation (VTI) of Delft University of Technology and The Institute of Security and Global Affairs (ISGA) of Leiden University.

 

Disinformation is increasingly recognized as a threat to national security and democracy. Examples are the spread of fake news and trolling. However, in policy making it has not yet generally been recognized as a national security risk, or a cybersecurity risk. In the workshop, we will discuss why it can be seen as such, what ways we might employ to deal with it, and what ethical issues the threat, as well as possible measures against it, may raise.

 

Target group:

Civil servants and other professionals working on national security and cyber security, academics doing research on cybersecurity and national security
