Hackers and journalists: attempts at dialogue and the fundamentals of technology and security. Concepts, terminology, doubts and misunderstandings.

This session includes a detailed overview of the history of hacking, from the 1960s and 70s up to the most sensational events of the modern era: Stuxnet, NSA/Snowden, State-sponsored attacks/Sony, cybercrime/ransomware and more. It will be interesting to learn about the point of view of the original hacker community which, in many cases, has felt "betrayed" by the evolution of certain behaviour and some aspects of the current framework.

Organized in association with the Department of Legal Informatics of the University of Milan.
