Back to the Future - Cybercrime's lessons from the past

Monash Law Thought Leadership Breakfast

Much has been said about the disruptive potential of new technologies such as AI and Blockchain. If history is any guide, one thing is certain: these technologies will be used by offenders to commit a broad range of offences. Join us for a thought-provoking seminar on preparing for these emerging threats and what can be learnt from earlier attempts to regulate cybercrimes.

Drawing on practical examples, Monash Law's Cybercrime expert Professor Jonathan Clough will explore some of the current challenges in the field against the lessons of the past, including:
  • whether these are these truly new crimes, or old crimes committed in new ways
  • the need for technological neutrality
  • the blurring of cybercrime and cybersecurity, and
  • the challenges to sovereignty that threaten transnational cooperation

The seminar will be moderated by Phillip Magness, National Forensic Technology Manager, Corrs Chambers Westgarth.

Breakfast will be provided for attendees, please arrive at 7am, the Seminar will begin at 7:30am.
