From ubiquitous software-controlled vehicles, innovations in gaming, virtual reality, and hyper-scale cloud adoption, to supply chain frictions, a proliferation of inexpensive tools available to cybercriminals, the emergence of synthetic image generators, and fractures in global internet governance, the landscape of digital security is constantly changing.

Cybersecurity Futures 2030 is a foresight-focused scenario-planning exercise, led by the Center for Long-Term Cybersecurity in partnership with the World Economic Forum, to consider how cybersecurity is set to transform over the next five to seven years. This talk will discuss findings that have emerged from a series of international workshops on four continents, teeing up important choices in cybersecurity that decision-makers can use to seize opportunities, address challenges, and mitigate risks that exist just over the horizon.

This seminar will be held both online & in person. You are welcome to join us either in South Hall or via Zoom.
