VB2019 paper: We need to talk - opening a discussion about ethics in infosec

Posted by   Martijn Grooten on   Nov 1, 2019

If infosec was ever a subject with little practical impact, it certainly isn't today:  infosec headlines feature in the mainstream media almost every day. This means that those working in the field are faced with ethical dilemmas that are impossible to avoid ─ even if you still want to consider it a mostly technical field.

And thus we should talk. This was the idea of Kaspersky researcher Ivan Kwiatkowski whose paper on the subject he presented at VB2019 in London. Ivan's paper, which is well-rooted in the history of Western philosophy, is intended to start a discussion and remind everyone in this field of the implicit and explicit dilemmas they face.

Today we publish Ivan's paper in both HTML and PDF format. We have also uploaded the video of his VB2019 presentation to our YouTube channel.
