Over the Horizon: How Geopolitics & Demographics Will Shape Cybersecurity

18 Oct 2022
Level 3, Room GW1 | Sands Expo and Convention Centre
Developing the Cybersecurity Ecosystem

Cybersecurity and geopolitics are inexorably linked, but we tend to limit our thinking to what threat actors (criminal and state sponsored) will execute next, particularly towards critical infrastructure. The reality is cyber threats and impacts to cybersecurity don't stop there. Today's cyber leaders must be tuned into the geopolitical world to effectively plan for the future. Geopolitics and demographics are studied, analysed and interpreted by state and corporate leaders, economists, politicians, strategic planners and the like, influencing mid-term and long-term plans on investments and initiatives from the mundane to nation shaping. This will be a highly informative session exploring critical demographic changes and predictions, including likely geopolitical scenarios and their impact to the cybersecurity landscape, technology, business and market. Participants will receive insights into the future, an understanding of how these changes will affect their organisation, and practical advice on how to build these considerations into strategic cybersecurity planning.
