Cybersecurity is a quickly evolving issue, and the Asia-Pacific region is an epicenter for wide-ranging and emerging threats. This panel of experts will cover a lot of ground, both explaining the fundamental vulnerabilities, and the nascent technologies which present both concerns as well as advantages. They will also address some of the strengths and weaknesses of various players, both state-sponsored, dark web, and the kudo-driven culture of hacking among youth. Finally, the panel will take your questions about blockchain, quantum computing, cryptocurrencies, and the critical-need cyber security career pathways for which bright minds are being recruited from colleges, high schools and even middle schools.
