Technology is fuelling virtually every industry and aspect of modern life, but moving everything online has also powered new digital threats. From cyber crime to QAnon, security threats are being fuelled by AI and misinformation — and the trend is growing at an alarming rate. To tilt the playing field, we need to start a new conversation that links cyber circles to national security, and that answers the question: how can we wield technology to keep our companies online and our citizens safe?
From fraud and money laundering to data privacy and national security, this stage carefully inspects today’s most urgent security questions. With the keen insight from hackers, generals, AI artists and everyone in between, we explore how technology is both our greatest threat and our best defence in the battle for a safer cyber space. Because no technology is ever either good or evil in itself. It’s how it’s used that matters.
