Should the Sharing of Hacking Knowledge be Discouraged?
From Ms CHANG Ching Chen _ on November 2nd, 2018
Cyber-attacks cost the global economy billions of dollars every year, and are of growing concern to businesses and governments around the world. One reason for the surge in cybersecurity violation events is the low cost of acquiring the necessary tools and programmes to commit cyber-attacks. Online hacker forums are among the most important platforms which enable communication among potential hackers or technology-savvy users, and provide free-to-access resources on malicious attack techniques.
In this podcast, Assistant Professor Wang Qiuhong from SMU’s School of Information Systems, shares her work on the net impact of hacking discussions on cyber-attacks and the regulation of hacker forums.
