The internet has become a major part of our lives. It has brought enormous benefits of efficiency, speed and access to knowledge. Around 55% of the world population now have access and it continues to grow. However, issues of trust and problems with security have meant that over the last few years it’s not been looking quite as rosy.
CW have formed a multi-disciplinary team to help our community explore the question of trust across the technology landscape. We hope to educate engineering professionals on the behavioural and security ramifications of design decisions and to consider alternative solutions. We aim to cover a variety of topics within this field of "Engineering Trust", with our inaugural event looking at individual identity.
Join us on 7 February for an interactive workshop looking at the impact of identity, or the lack of it, on behaviour in cyberspace. The session begins with a series of short and informative talks on the social impact of anonymity and possible design routes to addressing challenges. A workshop will conclude the afternoon with teams considering solutions to specific problems raised - prizes will be awarded!
