Special seminar: The Private Politics of Cyber Security: New Ways forward for Collaboration

22 September 2016 kl. 14:00

ICT and cyber security are increasingly dependent on various forms of collaboration between both public and private actors in order to manage the multiple and highly complex challenges. Even so, significant differences in priorities beg the question if public-private and private-private partnerships can truly unite the relevant actors behind a common goal. Will a mobilisation of private companies and increased information-sharing aid national cyber security? Can private companies benefit from working with the notoriously closed world of the intelligence services? And what interests do activists and interest organisations have in collaborating with the corporate world?  We invite you to an inspirational talk, wherein a panel of experts including Professor Sir David Omand, former Director of the UK’s GCHQ, Robert Hayes, Senior Director, Microsoft Global Cyber Security & Data Privacy Group, and Christian Panton, Co-founder of Bitbureauet, discuss these new forms of collaboration and how they enable new ways of construing cyber- and information security, as well as the practical and ethical challenges inherent herein.

Visual Securitization: Threats, Genre, and Temporality

16 December 2010 kl. 09.00

Images play an important role for security policies and conceptualizations. They are mobilized by securitizing actors who seek to convince their audiences that particular threats are worthy of collective response, and they work as media through which the past and present are constituted. Visual representations arise within particular spaces yet have the capacity to gain worldwide circulation and appropriation. This seminar will discuss how we might theorize and analyze the role images play for security through four papers that address genres ranging from memorials to video and film. Read more
