Opening Keynote | Security in an Unsecure World – During a Multicrisis

Cybersecurity does not begin with the installation of antivirus software. It starts much earlier, with the analysis of one’s own risks and dependencies. I.e., our digital society is completely dependent on electricity. Without electricity, there is no IT – and vice versa! However, where does all our IT-Hardware come from? And what has Argon-gas to do with all of this?

The events of the last few years, from the Covid pandemic, to the Russian war of aggression, to the looming energy shortage in Switzerland, have shown us how risk exposure can change quickly and fundamentally. Oh, and what actually happens if Taiwan were to be attacked? A “perfect storm” looms in the coming winter. – A combination of a new Covid wave, simultaneously with an energy shortage and a further escalation of the war in Ukraine.

Daniel Caduff presents possible scenarios and how these scenarios should be reflected in your cybersecurity strategy.
