The Digital Society Conference 2017: Reliability Reloaded

November 20-21, 2017
ESMT Berlin
Schlossplatz 1, 10178 Berlin

The problems of cybersecurity and privacy develop into a constant crisis. Attacks are getting better, impacts get more severe. All kinds of systems and all parts of societal life are being attacked. Authoritarian states abuse the Internet to control their citizens and influence their neighbors. And our traditional technical and political “solutions” fail us ever faster. If everything is vulnerable, nothing is reliable. A state we cannot tolerate.

This year’s conference will discuss how to reintroduce technical, legal, political and military reliability in an age of digital insecurities und uncertainties. The conference will bring two days of technical and political panels, presentations, and workshops, giving you many different perspectives from science, industry and governments, and including speakers from MIT, NATO, Oxford University, Harvard University Belfer Center, Tel Aviv University, the Harvard Kennedy School AI Initiative, Conservatoire National des Arts et Métiers Paris, Atlantic Council, I am the Cavalry, the German Bundestag, and many more.

Our speakers will map the shallows of our loss of control and bring novel thoughts and technologies to the discussion. Join us in our battle to reconquer security, human rights, democratic discourse as well as economic and military stability.
 

Topics include:

  • The security of our economies
  • The failing market of medical IT
  • The rise of AI in defense
  • Military cyberdefense Innovation
  • Developing IT-security research and education
  • Building cyberdefense innovation hubs
  • Germany's "Digitalpolitik 2017-2021"
