"Evolving Nature of Cyber Security Threats"
In the past year, we have seen a dramatic increase in the sophistication and reach of cyber security threats. Cyber attacks not only steal and abuse online data at an unprecedented scale, they can also have serious consequences for physical systems that are critical for our well being. As we increasingly rely on information from online sources and social media, we also face denial of information attacks that target our ability to access relevant and quality information. This year’s summit will bring together cyber security leaders with diverse expertise to explore the evolving nature of cyber security threats and the challenges we must address to secure cyberspace.
