Zero Days: cyber-terrorism documentary

On Tuesday 15th November at 6.15pm in the IFI in Temple Bar there is a screening of a new film called 'Zero Days', in conjunction with the Science Gallery Dublin. This will then be followed by a panel discussion with Orla Cox, Security Intelligence Delivery at Symantec, Pól Mac Aonghusa, Senior Research Manager at the IBM Research Lab and hosted by Jess Kelly, Tech Journalist at Newstalk.

Zero Days is an eye-opening piece of investigative journalism into the world of cyber-terrorism; Gibney specifically targets the so-called Stuxnet worm, a computer virus that manifested around the world in 2012 before arriving at its destination, Iranian nuclear facilities. The Stuxnet worm represented a new level of sophistication in virus complexity; its potentially devastating application has been spoken of as an act of war during peacetime.

More info on this event can be found here. Suitable for anyone interested in computer science particularly those interested in cyber terrorism and are keen to learn more about security in a technology based world.
