The Cybersecurity Management Challenges Organizing Committee and Franklin University Switzerland are pleased to announce the sixth annual symposium taking place on the 30th of November 2022 at Franklin University Switzerland in Lugano.
This year’s symposium will focus on Operational Technology, Artificial Intelligence, and the Challenges of Systemic Adaptation.
It will be built on the five previous ground-breaking CMC editions which drew international participants from government, industry and academia. This year’s symposium, as in the past, will gather policy-makers, business executives, and security specialists from government and academic institutions to discuss and formulate responses to the future evolution of cybersecurity, as the threats evolve and expand in a globalized international socio-political system.
Cybersecurity has come a long way in the last decade as it was not an item that seemed of great interest to the larger world but it became so because of cyber war in the relations among friends and enemies in international affairs. Soon after, the digitalization of communications, marketing, and financial transactions all witnessed political and criminal attempts to shape collective perceptions and inevitably manipulate social and political power relations. The Covid-19 pandemic and the exponential use of digitalized communications gave a significant boost to cyber manipulations.
The world of business and economic activities relies heavily on digitalized interactions. The challenge of cybersecurity is central to the interactive development of technology, business, and finance.
This symposium will introduce participants to the most pressing challenges posed in this area and the evermore dynamic and competitive national and international economic systems that are trying to adapt to these trends.
