InfoSec Conference Summary
The description was submitted by the Conference Organizer. We sometimes edit it to enhance the listing.
Cybersecurity is not getting better, but worse. Estimated cybercrime cost will reach $6 trillion by 2022, most of which unreported or unnoticed by the victims. The World is rapidly turning into a hacker republic, where economic and political power is increasingly accruing to those actors with the most informational and hacking superiority in critical IT systems.
When even the communications of Bezos and Trump with their closest associates appear well be easily hackable even by mid-level hackers, what hope is there for the rest of us mere mortals? Hacking advances with AI and voice cloning are eroding trust in digital financial transactions? Is it really a technological problem? Or is it instead that all IT is broken, by design, at birth, to satisfy legitimate needs of law enforcement? Can we have both freedom and safety in cyberspace? Can we really choose between them?
After editions twice in Brussels, and once in New York, Iguaçu and Berlin, we’ll hold our 6th Free and Safe in Cyberspace next April 9-10th 2019 in Geneva, at Fusion startup accelerator – new home to our Trustless Computing Association and its spin-off startup TRUSTLESS.AI since October 2018.
As in previous editions, top experts and organizations will discuss how we can build a new computing ecosystem and certification body to achieve radically-unprecedented levels of trustworthiness while concurrently ensuring offline legitimate lawful access. Initially for sensitive human communications and financial transactions, and then critical AIs.
In addition, we will explore how a few leading wealth management firms, enterprises, public institutions and NGOs can leverage such innovations to turn client-side cybersecurity from a threat into a fundamental competitive advantage in their respective markets.
