About this talk

Critical infrastructure and services such as manufacturing, energy and natural resources, telecoms, financial services, healthcare and pharma that serve humanity are often prime targets for cyberattacks. There is no shortage of malicious actors trying to cause mass disruption to public life and safety; through supply chain attacks as seen in the Colonial Pipeline attack, or try to poison a Florida city's (Oldsmar) water supply, target the power grid of Ukraine, or even target a German wind turbine firm. These attacks showcase the undeniable need to secure invaluable resources and people’s digital lives—professional and personal. In honor of Earth Day, join Yubico and our esteemed panelists from Solvatten and Grist to discuss the incredible work that they are doing for society, along with how technology and cybersecurity enables them to act out their mission.
