CBS Cybersecurity Alumni Network event (Open to all)

Event Description

Why are we still not ready for the cyber threats?

We are still getting robbed by ransomware gangs, China continues to steal intellectual property through state sponsored cyber espionage campaigns, and the Russian hacktivists have only increased their malicious activities since the Ukraine War broke out. This CBS cyber alumni event gathers leading Nordic voices to give their perspective on the state of cybersecurity in the Nordics. In seven minutes, seven experts address the key questions the public and private sector are currently facing: Where are we now? What is the problem? And where should we look for solutions?
