On April 8, 2022, in conjunction with the exhibition Terror Contagion, the MAC invites you to a conference by Sylvana Al Baba Douaihy.

The culture of connectivity is increasingly entrenched in our societies and our daily lives, and cyberspace has become a catalyst for cyberthreats, cybercrimes, hacking and data breaches, and more. This public workshop aims to raise awareness about these major issues and to highlight the importance of maintaining good cyber hygiene, not only to protect our personal data, but also to prevent cybersecurity risks.

Sylvana Al Baba Douaihy is the General Coordinator of the UNESCO Chair in the Prevention of Radicalization and Violent Extremism (UNESCO-PREV). She has an interdisciplinary background, with a PhD in Studies of Contemporary Religion, and a Master of Engineering degree in Computer and Communication Network Engineering. Sylvana is interested in the study and analysis of cyber phenomena in the humanities and social sciences, and the mutation of contemporary societies through digital media. She teaches courses on cyberterrorism at the Graduate School of International Studies at Laval University, on applied policy at Sherbrooke University, and on cybersecurity at the University Centre for Continuing Education at Sherbrooke University. Previously, she was the Senior Program Planning Officer, Security & Investigation Services, at Canada Post.
