Thanks to cybersecurity technologies such as Privilege Access Management and security concepts like Zero Trust, we now have the capacity to secure all digital access, from the cloud to IoT.
Digital access in software and hardware must be secure by design to minimize risk as much as possible. We have seen official agencies including the US and UK governments signing off expansive cybersecurity executive orders to boost national security, and cybersecurity chiefs pushing for the inculcation of security by design in software.
However, the technology itself is not enough to build a trusted digital world. To cultivate this world, we need to raise general cybersecurity awareness for all citizens. This is no easy feat, so the first logical step is to focus on building knowledge and awareness in business schools, mentoring the directors of the future because they will have to learn how to deal with cyber risk daily.
To bring a trusted digital world to life, we must also disrupt the political sphere in the UK and surrounding European countries. The European continent must become a leader in digital sovereignty – where data protection and privacy are respected by all – by cross-country collaboration and the establishment of a European Business Act. European countries are democracies that produce large amounts of data, so to achieve this act, we must create a separate European model that protects and respects our valuable data.
• Educate attendees on the concept of digital sovereignty
• Build interest in the better protection of our data
• Provide attendees with the appropriate tools and knowledge to start working towards making digital sovereignty a top priority for their organisation and beyond
• Inspire attendees to collaborate with other departments and countries to create a more trusted digital sphere
