Free and Safe in Cyberspace
6th Edition – Winter 2019

Thursday, January 24th, 2019
Geneva, Switzerland

After 5 editions in Brussels, New York, Brazil, and last in Berlin last May 4th, we’ll meet again with top experts, companies and public institutions to discuss our we can radically mitigate the current deep insecurity of society critical IT systems in this Digital Age, with a focus in the area of human communication and financial transaction.

The event will revolve around 3 main panels, tackling a key challenges
  • Challenge A: What new paradigms, techs and certifications can radically improve the cybersecurity of general human computing of high-profile persons as well as ordinary citizens?

  • Challenge B: If we solve Challenge A, how can we solidly prevent criminal abuse by serious criminals?

  • Challenge C: what new approaches to protect and substantially improve the cybersecurity of financial institutions and their clients, in the short and medium term? We’ll start from security-by-design, new “zero trust” models and standards, blockchain, quantum computing, AI.

We’ll debate if personal freedom and public safety in the internet age are inevitably “either-or” choice, a zero-sum game, as most believe, or instead a solvable “both-or neither” challenge, whereby the uncompromising zero-trust technical and governance safeguards and paradigms that are needed to radically improve personal freedoms are the same that can make lawful access sufficiently resilient from abuse, and make our public security agencies most effective and accountable.
