Information Sharing: Business, Law Enforcement, and Civil Society. March 15, 2016

Cyber Panel and Discussion



6:00-8:00 pm

Cybersecurity has been one of the most talked about issues in national security, and at the centre of that issue is our data. Whether it is governments sharing data between each other to detect terrorist behaviour or governments seeking information from large corporations, information sharing plays a key role in cybersecurity as a defence strategy. As we have especially seen with the most recent FBI and Apple encryption conflict, the major dichotomy within this framework has been national security versus the right to privacy.

Information-sharing is not just for fighting terrorism on a national scale, though; it is a tool used by localized law enforcement bodies and businesses to ensure information security in general. What we often lose sight of is how information-sharing impacts us directly and daily. Join us as we discuss the more personal security benefits and privacy risks of using information-sharing as a cyber tool from the perspectives of law-enforcement, businesses, and general consumers.

Speaking at the Panel will be
Inspector Shawna Coxon,  with the Toronto Police Service
Dr. Avner Levin, Director of the Privacy and Cyber Crime Institute at Ryerson University
George Platsis, SRI Professionals

Discussion will be moderated by Marcus Troiano, Cybersecurity Consultant at Mandiant, a FireEye Company
