Securing Our Future

Mikko Hypponen, Chief Research Officer at F-Secure and Digital Freedom Advocate

Technology around us is changing faster than ever. We've already become dependant of our digital devices, and this is just the beginning. As connected devices open new opportunities for imagination, they also open up new opportunities for online criminals. Where are we today? Where are we going? And how are we ever going to secure a billion new devices that will be going online over the next decade?

The Cyber Security Imperative

Wong Yu Han, Director (Strategy) at Cyber Security Agency

We all know that we need to protect our data online, given that our business and personal lives are increasingly conducted in cyberspace. But why is cyber security such a challenging issue? And how can government, businesses and citizens work together to create a secure Smart Nation?

Taking a Global Look at Personal Data Protection – Can the World Achieve Better Privacy Protection in 2020?

Francoise Gilbert, General Counsel at Cloud Security Alliance (CSA)

Businesses and governments are eager to collect personal data for a wide variety of reasons. As technology evolves, the means of capturing everyone’s actions and predicting everyone’s thoughts or wishes are increasingly powerful and invasive. The magical ability to collect and process huge amounts of data has delighted researchers, marketers, and intelligence organizations equally. Ubiquitous computing, offshoring, and connected databases make most personal data available almost anywhere in the world. However, laws and standards lag behind technology. Where are we headed? Are we prepared to address the personal data issues of the future? How can we achieve better privacy protection in 2020 while preserving each country’s cultural differences?
