Topic Description

"In a relatively short time we've taken a system built to resist destruction by nuclear weapons and made it vulnerable to toasters." - Jeff Jarmoc. We would all agree that security is important. Historically, the need for secrecy in wartime spearheaded much of the technology that is still used to secure communications and financial transactions today - only now, processing power has put advanced cryptography in the hands of everyone, not just governments and large corporations. Failings in security can have serious consequences for society – our personal livelihoods, health systems, financial systems, even the political stability of countries or entire regions. In this track we will look ahead: what form might future attacks on our security at every level take? How can we meet these challenges?
