Panelists include Oran Hollander, head of cybersecurity at Telefónica Germany GmbH & Co. OHG; Hans-Wilhelm Dunn, president of the Cyber-Security Council Germany; and Ric Longenecker, CISO of Verisure. The forum will deliberate on the business, technical and social challenges facing business executives, civic leaders and cybersecurity experts alike in our increasingly digitized society.
Hosted during the World Economic Forum, Cyber Future Dialogue is an executive roundtable of select global leaders and luminaries from both public and private sectors. The Cyber Future Dialogue is in its second year and is convened by Valmiki Mukherjee, chairman and founder of Cyber Future Foundation. This pioneering group will develop a call to action and issue a resolution for tackling the upcoming year’s cybersecurity priorities.
“Cyber risk effects virtually every enterprise and there is an evident need for international coordinated action to protect our connected critical infrastructure from the growing cybersecurity threat,” said Chad Sweet, CEO and co-founder of The Chertoff Group. “I look forward to working with fellow panelists and delegates of the Cyber Future Foundation to help bolster a productive discussion that leads to concrete, tangible cybersecurity solutions and unites stakeholders around shared cybersecurity goals.”
“We are seeing an extraordinary move to a connected, digital world, where digital technology controls every aspect of our being. While technology in its various forms is meant to enhance our experience and enrich our lives, it is also being used in ways that the creators of those technologies could never imagine,” said Valmiki Mukherjee, chairman and founder of Cyber Future Foundation. “For us to move forward as individuals, businesses and nations, we need to have a holistic view of the cyber implications, ranging from technology to its implication on our nations and businesses, and above all people. We are convening the dialogue as the Cyber Future Foundation’s continued measure of executive engagement across multiple stakeholders.”
