International keynote:

The simplicity of data weaponisation.  

Event 1  |  Event 2  |  Event 3 
Data is one of the biggest threats to our generation. The democratisation of technology is enabling bad actors to manipulate data and corrupt individuals, from politicians (think Trump) to foreign fighters (think ISIS). Advances in data science and AI will certainly save lives and cure diseases, but the same technology can easily be used for darker purposes.

We’re not immune, nor are we helpless in this battle. We have a responsibility to understand how our data and actions are playing a part in creating vulnerabilities which can be exploited.

During this event Davey will discuss his experiences with government, security forces and activists to protect our technology, AI in particular, from weaponisation. Join us to learn how:

>> Data has flipped from a powerful business tool into a threat to our safety and way of life
>> Everyone within the digital ecosystem is responsible for taking an active role to protect the data entrusted to us
>> The data powering our artificial intelligence, robotics and automation processes is vulnerable to the simplest of hacks
>> All organisations are impacted by data misuse
>> The complexity of modern threats renders cyber security a lost battle

⚡️Keen for a sneak peek? Check out our Q&A with Davey on all things data weaponisation; data security; and WHY we need new language to discuss cybersecurity in a AI-enabled age … and then join us on March 26 to hear from him in person!⚡️
