Although experts say an invisible global war has long been the part of everyday reality in cyberspace, the war in Ukraine has catapulted the topic to mainstream public discussion. State-backed hackers as well as profiteering cybercriminals probe networks and systems for the slightest vulnerabilities to exploit for their own gain.
At this event we discuss the global cybersecurity landscape and explore ways governments and businesses can minimize their digital vulnerabilities.
We also discuss:
- The cyber war in Ukraine, the growing concerns of cyber security incidents and the resilience of critical business functions.
- Cybersecurity and energy security
- Vulnerabilities and defense of IoT solutions
- Cybersecurity awareness and preparedness

My 30-year-long tenure at Microsoft gave me the unique opportunity to witness from the inside landmark events like the internet bubble or reorienting Microsoft’s business model from selling software to providing cloud. I believe that negative implications of technology can be mitigated unless we underestimate their risk and fail to act accordingly.
