Welcome from the organizers

We are pleased to bring to your kind attention the upcoming fourth consecutive edition of the Executive Cybersecurity Management Challenges (CMC) symposium, which has cemented its role as Switzerland’s truly international Cybersecurity symposia. As in the previous editions, but in a completely new format, it will bring together in Lugano both domestic as well as international cyber experts, who will actively keep abreast high-level institutional, business and government representatives of security trends and evolving threats.

With the increasingly extended presence of technology in the daily life of everyone, strongly influenced by the 4.0 revolution, we observe and live with the increasing presence of artificial intelligence, anticipating and facilitating our decision making, but as well influencing our behaviors and personal interactions. Automated vehicles are already available, circulating in our streets within obsolete human driven vehicles. Drones are not any longer part of secret tests in a discrete lab or toys for the younger generations but have even become competitors to the more classical supply chain distribution models. Drones, robots and artificial intelligence are coming to our cities to serve and protect, helping banks to predict market floatation’s, increasing law enforcement agencies in crime prediction, monitoring and interaction with citizen’s.

This symposium will discuss how the 4.0 revolution has penetrated private businesses and how drones and automated robots are affecting supply chains, production and distribution. How government services like law enforcement, hospitals or eGovernment have shaped a new relation with the citizens. What we could expect to see very soon in our cities, what are the actual experiences currently under way not far from us and what will be the first to come to our homes.

While covering the opportunities which those technologies will bring to our daily life, we will also discuss the challenges and risks brought along with those opportunities. Will privacy be impacted by drones? Will AI influence my next vote? Are robots manipulating the markets? Will law enforcement anticipate crimes? Will criminals hide behind fake news? Will government abuse its power? How will the future hospital be?

Experts from diverse business areas along with political leaders and technology gurus will openly discuss their senior leader perspectives and bring their insight to the conversation.

The event, promoted by Anchorage Group in partnership with Franklin University Switzerland (www.fus.edu), is proud to have received the patronage of the City of Lugano, as well as support from numerous partners and sponsors.

The location will be the prestigious “Nielsen Auditorium” at the Lugano-Sorengo Campus of Franklin University Switzerland.
Yours sincerely,
