Corruption of Memory: Those who don’t know history are doomed to repeat it.

Keynote by Professor Herbert Bos

Wednesday, 28 February 2024

In this keynote, Prof. Bos will relate his own academic infosec research to some activities that occur outside academia, but may look surprisingly similar. We might learn if there are shades of grey between “white hats” and “black hats”; we will certainly hear that if we ignore what history can teach us, we do so at our peril!
