Wednesday, October 2 at 1:30PM – Resilience in a Digital World: From Citizen, to Corporation, to Country

The ability of a nation to ensure operational resilience in a digital world is dependant on a number of key stakeholders. Responsibilities lie with civil society, industry, academic institutions and governments, working within a collaborative framework that strengthens resiliency. This powerful framework supports the development of a digitally aware citizenry, a cohort of diverse cybersecurity talent, and a robust product pipeline that embraces security by design. Governments have a critical role to play by applying the concept of sovereign technology to critical infrastructure supply chains. Ultimately, the ability for all stakeholders to collaborate and work together will be the true measure of resilience in a digital world.
