fit4sec Capacity Building Workshop: Value-Sensitive Technological Innovation in Cybersecurity

Contemporary European societies rapidly expand their digital footprint as connectivity among citizens, businesses and governments grows. With the expansion of digital technologies comes a greater need and responsibility for cybersecurity. One important challenge in this is to "ensure a flourishing information society which offers safety and security and at the same time respects Europe´s fundamental values and rights" (European Commission). In particular, innovation is needed on how to embed European values and fundamental rights into the information system design and software engineering for cybersecurity purposes. fit4sec

Within the framework of its fit4sec initiative, the Brandenburg Institute for Society and Security (BIGS) is organizing a capacity building workshop to examine the challenges pointed out above and to bring renowned experts from industry, academia, civil society and public bodies together to discuss the specific challenges and opportunities for value-sensitive technological innovation in cybersecurity. It does so in conjunction with the open call DS-7-2015 of the Horizon 2020 Secure Societies Programme.
