Current and future challenges in cybersecurity panel topics

The panel of thought leaders will discuss cybersecurity at the personal, institutional and societal level with a focus on higher education. Panelists will share their views on trends in cybersecurity, including:

  • Has cybersecurity made headway in making the technical underpinnings of society safer?
  • Are we fighting tomorrow’s cyber battles with yesterday’s methods?
  • How does anyone keep up with the emerging threats and creative new uses of technology?
  • What’s likely to stay the same and what’s changing in how we think about and respond to cyber risks?
