Digital Privacy Apéro: Malware and their impact on our lives – 10/03/21

Wednesday, March 10 sees the first Digital Privacy Apero of the year:

The first kind of malware that we will cover are the ransomware which were in the press a lot in the recent months, especially since a handful of hospitals were heavily impacted by them.

Then, we will talk about spouseware and other parental control spyware used in households and companies to spy on family members and colleagues, and how they can be compromised and leak private information.

Finally, we will learn about some state-sponsored malware that are used by governments to target journalists and activists. As a case study we will discuss the Israeli technology firm NSO and its connections to Luxembourg.
