02: Cybersecurity, Privacy, Ethics – Opportunities and Threats for a Digital Society

-
Hauptschule
Breakout / Working Group
in englischer Sprache

Security, privacy and free data exchange are in quite a contradictory relationship. However, they are mutually dependent. Security and privacy are increasingly important for data protection, system reliability, and safety. Technical solutions are manifold, but what is ethically justifiable? By means of selected use cases, possible solutions and their significance for system reliability will be discussed, also considering moral limits and impact on user groups. We will point out necessary structures and measures for ethically-reflected research in Austria for it to become a recognised player worldwide.
