What's Happening?

In today’s world, it pays to be security-conscious. Everyone is a target. We explore the latest threats and defence, and well as sociological issues surrounding privacy, identity and security.

As our lives play out online, questions about the safety of our identities arise. In this track we will delve into this issue.

How do we confirm, control and protect our identities online?
Will biometrics play a larger role, and what implications will this have?
Are we reaching the ‘death of the password’ in our connected society?

Experts in security will come together to discuss the challenges related to hacking and hacktivism.

What can we learn from the biggest hacks and breaches this year?

How do companies rebuild trust?

Where are we most vulnerable and what can we do about it?

This track looks at how the world is online and how privacy seems to becoming less of a right and more of a luxury.

Church and State: How much should governments see online?
Best practices for safeguarding your online life.
How do we live in both the global and local societies at the same time?
Facebook, Snapchat, Twitter, Instagram: How much are we really sharing with the world?
