The ongoing pandemics is disrupting the way we live, work, buy, study, and socialize. Information technology has a crucial role in maintaining a sense of normality. However, ever since the first telegraphic wires, our communication has been vulnerable to different security breaches that all stakeholders should be aware of – individuals, companies, and countries. With better and continuous connectivity, the topic of cybersecurity is becoming increasingly relevant.
Prof Motohiro Tsuchiya, PhD, Dean of the Faculty of Policy Management from the Keio University Tokyo, has been focusing his research on geopolitical interest concerning the usage of cyber technology for political purposes. He will present the most recent findings in the field of cyber threats.
