Security, Privacy + Ethics: Challenges in our Digital Future

July 4th 2018

In this keynote speech, delivered at the ISACA's North American CACS conference in May 2018, futurist Shara Evans talks about the future of security and privacy, as well as the ethical issues that we'll face now and in our digital future.

Is your business safe from future Cyber threats? Futurist Shara Evans opens our eyes on how emerging technologies can be leveraged by cybercriminals in new and inventive ways 

including examples that may seem straight out of a science fiction movie, but are eminently possible with technology available now or in the very near future.

And, it’s not just about security, it’s also important to understand the privacy and ethical issues involved with emerging technologies.

We’re already seeing the increased integration of artificial intelligence-based devices and applications like Amazon Alexa, Google Home, Siri, Cortana and many more on our phones, computers and stand-alone appliances. By collecting big data about individuals and companies, are governments and mega technology corporations putting us at risk? Is your company exposed to massive revenue loss because of data breaches that arise from third-party use of your data?

Technologies like facial recognition, emotion recognition, augmented reality, artificial intelligence, drones, robots and the Internet of Things will radically change our world over the coming decade, but will these same technologies open up new attack vectors for cyber criminals?

Shara will also talk about the future of humanity, and how nanotechnologies and augmentation of our bodies may change what it means to be human, and along the way destroy our privacy forever.

By showing how and where your sensitive business and personal information may be compromised, Shara will raise your risk awareness and provide you with insights that will help you navigate the brave new world of ubiquitous connectivity.

Can you afford not to understand the imminent threats that lie ahead?
