Cyber Security Lunch Briefing

  • Flexispace, by Charter Hall and InterOffice Level 16, No. 1 Martin Place Sydney NSW 2000 Australia (map)

Digital technology is taking over. Disruptive technologies are changing the market and are affecting each and every one of us. We live in a world where algorithms and virtual intelligence dominate and slowly replace traditional means of work.   This has a much deeper impact than just the affecting digital world. It is in fact slowly shifting powers that were limited to the State towards commercialised private companies often reaching the public more effectively with a lower cost. While this is a natural progress and an ongoing evolution, it also opens the door for serious challenges of cyber crimes and cyber security. Australia is certainly taking the lead in the search for new technologies. In some of the Australian Airports, for example, there will be no need to use of Passports. Nevertheless, this may bring about questions and challenges ranging from securing borders to privacy. Questions like access control to databases, fail-safe procedures, or how does that affect ones' identity? Are we moving towards losing the traditional way we understand identity? What are the risks and the advantages of relying on digital technologies to authenticate identity? What is the new Identity  Ecosystem?      

 Light lunch and soft drinks will be provided.
