17 Nov. 2020

Today, 17 November 2020 marks the beginning of a new cooperation between EURid and the Technological University, Dublin. The cooperation is part of EURid's longstanding commitment to provide higher education courses on cybersecurity and Internet governance topics. The team from EURid comprises experienced practitioners from the world of cybersecurity, law enforcement and Internet law.

The course is entitled "Going Dark: law enforcement challenges in the cyber environment". It will cover the basics of Internet architecture, encryption and the relevant legal background, and the particular challenges of lawful access to encrypted content. It will also include relevant case studies on the San Bernardino attacks and the Covid-19 track and trace apps. The course will be provided entirely online this year, in light of the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. 

Nearly 50 students - both post graduate and staff - have signed up for the course, indicating a high interest in issues relating to cybersecurity, cybercrime and online privacy.
