Organised as part of the Geneva Digital Talks series, the event 'How can technological solutions advance cybersecurity?' will be held on 3 November 2017, from 10:00 - 16:30 CET, at the WMO building (De Mello conference room, 2nd floor), Avenue de la Paix 7bis, 1202 Geneva.
The design of digital technology impacts cybersecurity. While the initial Internet architecture was not secure enough, security was gradually built into new operating systems, applications and tools. Today, we are faced with new challenges ranging from the expansion of the Internet of Things to artificial intelligence. Technical solutions for both existing and emerging cybersecurity challenges will be essential for the future of the Internet.
This Geneva Digital Talks discussion will feature three parts : (1) a mapping of cyber vulnerabilities, (2) a panel on the interplay of technical and policy aspects as well as the installation and presentation of one practical Internet solution – the SCION architecture, and (3) future directions and expectations in cybersecurity.
