Can we stay ahead of cybercrime in a digital age?

What seemed like the plot of an action thriller 20 years ago has become a commonplace reality. Cyber attacks today shut down hospitals, oil pipelines and power grids; and can wreak havoc on both state and private institutions. As our working and personal lives become ever-more digitised, we are more at risk from cyber crime than ever. From phishing calls and emails, advanced viruses and malware, to the organised shut-down of essential national infrastructure; how can nations, businesses and individuals protect themselves? What does the future of cybersecurity look like? Can we stay ahead of cybercrime in this digital age?

Is the world ready for a cyber war?

President Biden warned that if the US were to end up in a “real shooting war” it would likely come as a result of a state-sponsored cyber-attack. And tensions between the big cyber-powers are growing more acute by the day. How far away are we from a cyber-war, and which countries are likely to start one? In this session, an expert will profile each of the major cyber-powers: the US, China, Israel and Russia to talk through their approach to cyber as both a weapon and a deterrent.

Who are the cyber criminals?

What is the profile of the top cyber criminals or hackers operating today – examining their modus operandi. From REvil to DarkSide – who are the criminals – where do they come from, and who sponsors them, and who negotiates with them once they have achieved a breach?

Cyber security: is spending more always the answer?

As the threats of ransomware and cyber attacks increase, how can we better assess the effectiveness of our cybersecurity tools? What are their limitations? What’s worth investing in? And how do we know that they’re working?

Cyber’s Prime Targets: who are the most vulnerable?

Cyber attacks have hit corporations from Target to JP Morgan, as well as national institutions. But which industries are the most vulnerable? What can key cyber attacks – like the SolarWinds and Kaseya breaches – tell us about how the threat landscape is developing? How do companies most at risk create a cyber skills career stream to best protect themselves? And how can governments help to establish a cyber skills talent pipeline for the future?

Future of cyber: is this how the world ends?

Last year broke all records in terms of cyber-attacks on companies, government, and individuals. But fast forward 5 years, or 10, and the situation could get much, much worse? What exactly is the worst case scenario and how close are we to experiencing it? And how do we set the groundwork to protect against catastrophic cyber attacks? What does the future of cyber defence look like, and who will be driving innovation in coming years?
