Trust & Technology Initiative


Webinar 5      4th August 2020, 18.00-19.00

In response to Covid-19 the global economy is reassessing and reimagining modes of consumption, supply, interaction, productivity and, last but not least - security. What does the accelerated move to the digital realm imply for cybersecurity and awareness of cyber risks?

Countering cyber threats successfully requires a focus on human behaviour as well as technology enhancement. This networking webinar brings together two academic experts to look at both digital security by design and human factors, and will review key areas of concern for cyber risk brought into sharper focus by the pandemic.

The event will be run as a Zoom Meeting, with Q&A and networking in breakout rooms, without being recorded. Attendance is free.  Please register your interest on Zoom; this will help us with the running of this virtual event.
