33rd Annual Monetary and Trade Conference
Cyber security is not something many of us think about every day. But — as recent international “hacking” events show — it is all around us. More and more personal data is being put online, from personal records to medical information to payment details. But the internet respects no country’s boundary. This conference will focus on the geopolitical, legal and technical aspects of cyber security in the modern world.
