Decrypting the WannaCry ransomware
*Why is it happening and (how) is it going to end?*

Thursday, 18th May, 2017 | 11:00 UTC (13:00 CEST)

Last week, the WannaCry ransomware cyber attack hit many countries
worldwide. Since then, it has continued to spread over the globe. Join us
on Thursday, 18th May, at 11:00 UTC (13:00 CEST) for a just-in-time webinar
on Decrypting the WannaCry ransomware.

The webinar will provide an analysis of the main technological,
geopolitical, legal, and economic aspects of the ransomware. Experts from
different fields will discuss why ransomware has become a major issue. Can
such attacks be prevented by technological measures alone? Is there a need
for a legal response, such as Microsoft’s proposal for the Digital Geneva
Convention? Is raising more awareness among users the ultimate solution?

The webinar will discuss whether it is possible to put a stop to malicious
software, or whether they should be considered the price we have to pay for
the many advantages of the Internet. Choices on policy will have to be made
sooner rather than later. The aim of the discussion is to explore and help
make informed policy choices.

Join us online on Thursday: register to book your seat. The webinar link
will be e-mailed to registrants one hour before the start.


This just-in-time webinar is organised by DiploFoundation and the Geneva
Internet Platform.
