Technology, like time, waits for no one. The rate of innovation is only matched by the speed of its adoption. ChatGPT attracted more than 100 million users in less than 50 days, a staggering acceleration in our willingness to embrace the novel. However, technology is often delivered without consideration of impact, particularly on an organisation’s ability to remain resilient. We are too often magpies attracted to the next shiny object, driven by fear of missing out, not considering the cost and implications of early adoption. But with all our focus on the new, it’s easy to forget about the old vulnerabilities that continue to plague us.

We were delighted to host this event with Zurich Resilience Solutions to consider generative AI and its implications for the threat landscape; the advance of smart devices augmenting legacy technology in some of the most sensitive parts of the supply chain, and how this affects vulnerability; as well as what quantum computing means for the security of systems, and whether Q-Day is nearer than we think.

Please note that there is no live stream or recording for this event.
