EMERGING CYBERTHREATS & INNOVATIVE DEFENCES – WHAT EVERY EXECUTIVE NEEDS TO KNOW
09:00
Quantum solutions to a quantum challenge

Advancements in quantum computers will result in a growing data security threat, but other quantum technologies will deliver solutions to help address them.

  • The power of quantum computing – what will it help us achieve?
  • Understanding the impact on security: what techniques will be impacted and when?
  • Introducing quantum cyber-security techniques: approaches and capabilities
  • The path forward, and what you can do now

09:30
Measuring the impact of a cyber security breach and managing cyber risk
  • The cost of business interruption
  • Reputational damage and legal costs associate with theft of customer information
  • The growing trend of cyber liability insurance
  • Building robust business continuity and disaster recovery plans
  • What type of data is needed for managing this risk

How will Blockchain redefine cybersecurity and fight cyberattacks?

In an age where we are all dependant on computer-driven systems and fail safes. Hackers literally have the power to cripple enterprises, and critical systems. Blockchain based cyber security is raising to potentially delivering a solution to the ongoing threats posed by such attacks.

  • Decentralisation and distribution: the critical nexus of cyber defence

IoT, high hopes, and the tragedy of the commons

The Internet of Things and Operational Technology is called the 4th Industrial Revolution by the World Economic Forum and is the pathway to the future.  IOT/OT is expected to deliver huge productivity gains and fundamentally change the economy over the next 5 years.  And yet, for the past 6 months it seems like all we hear about is devices that have “gone rogue”—such as the Mirai botnet—and started attacking things.  As a platform for security and delivery, Akamai enables IOT/OT, helps to secure devices, and protects infrastructure from attacking devices.  During this talk, we’ll take a balanced approach to the strange confusion of expectations, responsibilities, and failures around IOT/OT.

  • Device connectivity models
  • Responsibilities for device manufacturers, consumers, and ISPs
  • How the basics of security still apply but at a different scale
  • Dealing with devices gone bad

Panel session: Innovating with security in mind

Unified digital decision-making doesn’t happen overnight. Most C-level executives must develop processes to discuss technology-based challenges and opportunities. Within these opportunities, cyber-security needs to be front of mind.

  • Best practice risk management principles to improve security and resilience
  • Developing the cyber defence arsenal to fend off the latest variations of malware and ransomware
  • Innovative approaches to protecting critical data and safeguarding information sharing
  • Harnessing the possibilities of IoT while maintaining security
  • Where should you invest to maximise protection and minimise risk
  • How do you create the best defence against attacks through policy, training and technology
