The Masterclass – Social Cybersecurity

Considerable time and energy has been devoted to raising awareness of the technical threats to cybersecurity, such as ransomware and malware. But what of the threats to people and their relationships; to our families, societies, and polity? Social cybersecurity concerns the security and safety of people, societies, cultures and political systems in an environment where relationships are increasingly digitally mediated.

This masterclass examined i) the nature of local and global power and influence in our information infrastructure, from our mobile phones to subsea cables, and ii) the challenges for societies and policy makers that arise from these information technologies.


The Presenter – Dr Maryanne Kelton

Dr Maryanne Kelton’s research interests lie in Australian Foreign Policy, the security-economic nexus, Alliance relations, and social cybersecurity, digital anthropology, and democratic resilience with the Jeff Bleich Centre for the US Alliance in Digital Technology, Security and Governance.
