About the conference

Cyber security is a global issue with local impact. When cyber security breaches occur, it impacts on society at all levels: Users lose trust in digital platforms, companies lose money, and public institutions are discredited. Most conferences on cybersecurity focus on industry and government perspectives. The CMI Conference brings an academic and socio-technical approach: it identifies the issues across domains, examines user perspectives, and provides critical analysis on factors that may inhibit cyber security solutions. Aalborg University’s International Economic Crime and Cybercrime Research Centre (IECC) will provide insight on the optimal application of law enforcement.

Conference Objectives

  • To facilitate discussions between academia, industry and government on cyber security
