Event recording

Don't miss the second webinar in this series, which will take place on Tuesday, 4 April: Vulnerabilities in digital products: How can humans decrease risks for humans?

Event description

Wednesday, 29 March 2023

13:00–14:00 UTC (15:00–16:00 CEST), online

What do the SolarWinds hack, the use of Pegasus spyware, and the Colonial Pipeline ransomware attack have in common? Even though they have different targets, threat actors, and impacts, they all exploit software vulnerabilities.

Vulnerabilities in digital products remain an almost indispensable component of cyberattacks, especially high-impact ones. 

In this Geneva Dialogue webinar, together with expert panellists, we will discuss:

  • How do vulnerabilities emerge, how are they exploited, and to what end?
  • What can we learn from these exploitations?
  • What role do software vulnerabilities play in today’s digitalised society?

About the Geneva Dialogue

The Geneva Dialogue on Responsible Behaviour in Cyberspace is led by the Swiss Federal Department of Foreign Affairs (FDFA) and implemented by Diplo. It aims to map the roles and responsibilities of actors (states, the business sector, civil society, and the academic and tech communities ) in contributing to greater security and stability in cyberspace in the context of international peace and security, identify good practices and possible gaps in existing efforts, and, ideally, put forward recommendations for overcoming such gaps.
