Monday, November 26
University of Calgary Downtown Campus
Canadian Government has proposed a new National Security Cyber Strategy (NCSS) that focuses on society as much as state. NCSS requires a much more thorough relationship between state and society, including secret agencies and open bodies, which in turn challenges conventional views about the boundaries of the state, and the liberties of the citizen. It intensifies the old dilemmas of the relationship between liberty and security. This workshop brings, law enforcement, industry, and academia to discuss nuances and challenges of implementing the new strategy.
