Our increasingly digital and interconnected societies inevitably result in a heightened risk of major cyber crises, be it from steady, non-destructive attacks or from systemic contamination. The varying forms and severity of cyber threats continue to grow, with computer attacks generally based around four main objectives: espionage, illegal trafficking (cybercrime), sabotage, and destabilisation (information manipulations). However, geopolitics is not always a risk which is taken into account by CISOs and IT managers, as they do not necessarily comprehend the whole set of political, cultural, geoeconomics, etc. peculiarities of the markets in which their companies operate. This talk will seek to explain the need for integrating a more geopolitical lens into IT/cybersecurity strategies given the depth and global interdependencies of the risks. It will also focus on the actors, stakeholders in the global cyber landscape that we should consider in our risk-analysis, threat intelligence assessments.

How the digital transformation is changing our lives

The COVID-19 pandemic has shown all of us the benefits of information technology. It allows us to work at a distance, to live at a distance, and most importantly, to keep in touch at a distance – with younger and older people, those closest to us, and even make new contacts.

Our society relies more and more on information and operational technologies. Examples include water, energy, heat and cooling supply, communications, healthcare, production and processing of goods, transportation, national security, banking, research and education, and food production.

What all these areas have in common is that they make intensive use of networked distributed computer systems. These systems can be attacked in many ways. This is no longer just a problem for computer “pros” because computer systems are essential to all of us. The effects of “cyber-attacks” range from power outages to the collapse of the health care or banking sectors.
