The COVID-19 pandemic has heightened the cybersecurity risks for everyone, including large companies, small businesses, and individuals. What steps can individuals take to help protect our digital realities?
Join four Aspen Tech Policy Hub Fellows as they showcase their projects concerned with Protecting Your Digital Reality. Following the presentations of their projects, Raj Shah, Chairman at Arceo.ai, will give further remarks on the projects. The projects to be presented are:
1) Big Security for Small Business. How are small businesses supposed to keep their cyber assets safe when they do not have the resources of large companies? Matthew Schroeder and Matt Sievers will present their work to tackle this challenge. They recommend the adoption of curated tools designed to help small businesses meet a minimum standard for cybersecurity and help business owners protect their digital assets.
2) Digital Afterlife Project. How can individuals recover, access, or delete the digital lives of their loved ones after their passing? Olivia Erickson and Cecilia Donnelly Krum teamed up to recommend how state governments and technology companies can change their laws and products to help facilitate this painful process.
