This is our vision: like minded countries, working together to ensure the global community can gain the benefits of cyberspace and avoid the harms that instability brings.
Did the incident decimate us? Was it an extinction event? No. So did we have to hide from it? No. Was it painful? Absolutely yes. But it really did kind of help set up a model we hope that helps others for the future.
Making the most of our digital future is too big of an issue for any nation to handle alone.
When you think about the threats we’re facing, that’s where they are- attacks against elections, attacks against integrity. There’s someone manipulating the data. These things are going to become true, and very real, and very physical. There’s a world of difference between your spreadsheet crashes and you lose your data, or your car crashes and you lose your life. It might be same CPU, the same software, the same vulnerability, but wildly different consequences.
We forget the most important thing there is that we have to do – all we have to do is look for pin points, vulnerabilities, places where it could hurt – and then watch how long it takes for hackers to get in via our incidents
Take every incident, every compromise like it’s going to be your last. Take it seriously.
If we look at adversity in the right way, we can harness its power to compel us all to do more in our industry, to fight a common adversary together. Adversity leveraged in the right way can only make us stronger, forcing us to focus on the outcomes that our cyber defenders need the most.
We see cyber which has been an ongoing part of the daily competition between nations, now clearly will be part of conflict between nations.
We need to communicate and collaborate better. We obviously need to take a look at deceptive tech...we need to take a look at addressing organizations and we need to educate them and get them to listen... This gathering that we have here has the power to do so much good. Do some good, get out, communicate, collaborate.
Cybersecurity will use AI for both attack and defense, however, you need to have a human in the loop to make the decision on who gets targeted
