Last week I was invited to speak about Digital Transformation and the Future of Cyber Security at the AXIS Communication Annual Partners Day.
During my speech I focussed on the paradox and synergies of Cyber Security and Cyber Anxiety. Thus I talked about the History of Cyber Security, our current Sharing Economy, latest Data Breaches (From MyDoom to SONY PSN), Cyber Terrorism, Cyber Crime and Cyber War – also mentioning the FBI Cyber’s Most Wanted List.
“Everything that can be digitalized will be digitalized.”
To understand the importance of Cyber Security and the potential for future business I explained the key drivers and trends of the Digital Age: eHealth such as Digital Plasters, 3D Printing, Self-Driving Cars, Smart Drones, Robotics, from Big Data to Deep Learning, FinTech disrupting the financial industry and more.
At the end of my Cyber Security Keynote I showed the audience some easy tricks to do DIY Hacking: It’s easy to use someone else’s credit card, just search for “my new credit card search on twitter” on Twitter…. showed them the Dark Web, Tor and how to Rent a Hacker….. showcased them how you can turn on a smartphone camera with a text message, spy any mobile phone or even remote control a smartphone in a few steps. The reactions in the audience had been totally mixed, I saw lots of shocked faces, nodding heads or laughter. This was fun…
