Internet users are increasingly comfortable using information technologies. Whether they be employees using personal computers in their business or citizens involved with their own computer in militant action on the Web, individuals develop each day the independent skills to master the many possibilities of digital tools .  Some users are able to become experts able to undermine the safety systems of both firms and states. A new form of fighting ahead emerges ahead.


Anonymous & Hackers vs.  Information Security
The first roundtable, entitled “From Tunis to Hadopi, “Are we all called to become Anonymous? ” will be held Pascal Herard, journalist news site Reflets.info, Jérémie Zimmermann, co-founder of La Quadrature du Net and Frederic shingle, the Internet analyst, co-author of Anonymous (FYP Editions).

While hackers are present almost daily in headlines, the technologies of electronic surveillance are deployed on a large scale. What are the stakes of this technological race in which some work to increase the diffusion of information while others track communications and seek to mark out every move made on the Web?

Transparency vs. Protection of Information Systems
The second roundtable, entitled “Will RSSI leave room for RSI, Responsible for Information Security? “Meet Michel Bellot, the RSSI of Stime, Eric Dean, the RSSI of Generali and Cyril Reinhard, in charge of EPITA’s Multimedia & Information Technology major.

Do subcontracting, outsourcing and the use of cloud computing-announce the death knell of information system under control from start to finish of businesses and governments? With the movement BYOD (Bring Your Own Device)  do the same tools to access the computer professional who is challenged, while the phenomenon OpenData induces a sense of transparency hardly usual in our Latin culture.  Are we already giving up secure information systems to focus solely on the protection of information?
