About the Cyber Future Dialogue Series
As the World Economic Forum calls it, we are experiencing the Fourth Industrial Revolution driven by Digital Technology. While the industry and the global economic ecosystem are seeking to thrive in an era of innovation led by digital, it is facing an increasing challenge in one of its most inherent aspect - which is cyber. Digital without connectivity of cyberspace is inconsequential and cyberspace without consideration to the cyber risk and security is not impactful.
As executives across multiple sectors in the industry and public sector grapple with consequences of the cyber challenges, it is essential for these leaders to come together to deliberate on the fundamental aspects of cyber risk and address this collectively. Cybersecurity has naturally evolved as a key Board topic and now demands executive decision and action. This can only be achieved through collaboration and informed decision making at the highest levels where the business and the cyber chiefs work together to take these informed decisions and put them into action as any business measure.
With this the Cyber Future Foundation has convened the Cyber Future Dialogues as an initial measure of executive discussion across business and cyber chiefs, along with public sector and NGO leaders. This Cyber Future Dialogue is an executive roundtable of select global leaders to serve as a pioneer group to put together a call to action on all things that relate to the executive decision and action on cyber.

Cyber is an ever changing domain. Both the quantitative and qualitative aspects of cyberchallenges change by the hour, how can we assess risk on a continual basis and use cyber risk assurance mechanisms to mitigate them. Cyber insurance would encourage and incentivize improved information assurance and a more wholesome vision of best practices that connects technology and organizations more effectively and supports the development of a robust digital economy that can be relied on to perform and deliver value.

We strive to know our customers, we are keen to know our competitors and now we have a distinct set of adversaries, who are they, how can we protect our assets. How much business can do versus where we need public sector and government help in defeating cybercrime and thwarting cyber attacks. Developing a clear path to take measured action on cyber adversaries through public private partnership with law enforcement and government support. We will also consider economic models for incentivizing investments in cybersecurity.
|15.20 – 16.00||Discussion: How do we prepare for disruptive, innovative technology and talent||
CFD Cyber Delegate Panel will discuss how do we prepare for disruptive, innovative technology and talent? How can cyberlaw keep pace with the variety of cybercrime?
Quantum Computing, Block Chain, AI are only a few aspects of the digital disruption. Each of them individually and all of them collectively are disrupting businesses at a rate unforeseen in past decades. The advent of AI with its myriad application and consequences have already created significant questions and challenges, both in the technology and ethical realms, it needs a serious treatment. So does quantum computing with its impending consequences on the foundation of security through challenging current encryption standards. And from a disrupting business standpoint, blockchain certainly has the biggest impact. How do we prepare cyber talent for this. How do we keep legal framework upto date with this disruption? Will the rise of crypto currency or AI or quantum computing be held hostage to legalese? How can we have the technology supported by talent, and a legal framework to uphold the law aligned?

Businesses are looking for effective and seasoned cyber leaders to address the growing impact of cyber and govern the domains associated with it. However at many times the most seasoned cyber chiefs are challenged with sprawling cyber supply chains. So it is essential that the cyber programs follow a certain blueprint for success based on their size and nature of business. The blueprint could be adopted and molded based on the effectiveness of its attributes associated with the business. What are these components and how can they be effectively implemented?
|16.50 - 17.00||Conclusion with Action Items & Resolution||
