Seventh International Crisis Management Workshop (CrIM'13) and Oulu Winter School

Seventh International Crisis Management Workshop (CrIM'13) and Oulu Winter School to be held at the University of Oulu (Finland) from November 25th to November 26th 2013


Trends in cyber security after Snowden: Is cyber security still relevant?

Recent leaks of governmental monitoring practices in cyberspace have left anybody, citizens and security professionals/researchers, questioning current computing trends – particularly its security mechanisms.

Citizens are concerned about their digital lifestyle, with personal data stored in the ever growing ecosystem of cloud and mobile services and are starting to weight the obvious advantages of ubiquity and accessibility against the threat of constant surveillance. Governments, on the other hand, are worried about terrorists and whistle-blowers and that despite an unproportional effort for securing computer networks, confidential documents keep leaking to the public.

At CrIM'13, we are proud to present lectures covering a broad variety of topics related to the theme of the workshop.
