SERENE-RISC Tutorial

Examining Cybercrime 2: financial edition

event logo“Examining Cybercrime 2: financial edition” is a one-day multi-disciplinary tutorial. Following from last year’s successful event, this year’s tutorial will focus on cybercrime relating specifically to the financial sector. The tutorial will examine the subject with speakers addressing it from several different perspectives.

What are the most prevalent forms of financial cybercrime today? Who are the main targets and what is the cost of financial cybercrime? What are best practices for industry and government? How does financial cybercrime in Canada relate to the international community?

The tutorial will be divided into several sessions, each led by an industry, government, and academic expert in their respective area to provide insight and share first-hand experiences. The audience will be encouraged to ask questions and interact with the experts during the sessions. The last session of the day will be a panel question period where the audience can ask additional questions to individual experts, or ask speakers to debate a particular topic from different perspectives.
