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.
