Swiss Cyber Night at RSA is back!
2023 is set to be pivotal for digital technologies, presenting significant opportunities as well as potential risks. On one hand, we are seeing tremendous advances reaching the masses, like generative AI such as ChatGPT.
On the other hand, the global discussions around the regulations of technology and the volatile global geopolitical environments might impact technologies in an unprecedented way.
Many unknowns are ahead of us, not only when considering the impact that technology will have, but how it will benefit society and build trust.
In this complex environment, what’s next for cybersecurity? How can we ensure that we develop sustainable and resilient digital solutions with trust at their core? Join us for an interactive exchange with food and drinks as we explore the future of cybersecurity and how it relates to a changing society.
We are inviting a diverse range of speakers offering different perspectives on the future, and how to strengthen trust in digital technologies.
