A recent cyber-security incident in Nova Scotia has made national news.

When can you have a reasonable belief that public data is, in fact, public? A teenager was charged criminally after being accused of stealing confidential documents from a public-facing provincial Freedom of Information server. The problem is, it was only discovered because a provincial staffer made a typo in a URL.

This case is likely to have chilling effects on cyber-security research in the province if the accused is found guilty. Covered will be what happened and how, the governments response, and the nuance of "an open door" on the internet.

Could this have been an act of cyber-terrorism? Was it a simply a misunderstanding? As the incident will be replicated live; you'll be able to come to your own conclusions.
