Title Security in an Information Society
Contract Num. 27866-IC-1-2005-1-BE-ERASMUS-IPUC-3
Description  We live in an age where information-technology and communication are very important. Hence securing these concepts as vital to our society. The concrete application would be applied in the field of security, namely security threats and assets, forensics and fraud detection. Students in information technology with background knowledge in operating systems and networking are the target audience.

The main activities would be in the area of prevention, detection and investigation. As  ICT has a meaning of its own in each country it is important to compare the different  views and perspectives. So the different approaches to security in the different countries will be compared to come to a common consensus of what is a good working security practice. Using this consensus the students will work on a forensics case and in this process they will discuss and set the limits of what is ethical; which can be quite different depending on the cultural background of the student. As expected output the students should be able to use and report on the consensus working practice.
