Available On-demand

Evolving to survive the global economic crisis

Building up last year’s theme of the EU strategy, we look forward by predicting the cyber threat landscape of 2030 based on inputs from ENISA (European Cyber Security Agency). We take a macro view of the reality of today’s global cyber threat landscape. Considering factors such as economic and geopolitical instability, we ask the question: Is a Global Cyber Storm Brewing? Cyberattacks, such as phishing, ransomware, and DDoS attacks, are becoming more frequent and sophisticated. There is also growing concern that governments may boost their support for or involvement in disruptive cyber operations, particularly those carried out by countries such as Russia and North Korea.


The Secretary-General of INTERPOL, Jürgen Stock, recently emphasised that the threat of cybercrime is global and requires a coordinated response from the international community. Paul C Dwyer, President of the ICTTF International Cyber Threat Task Force, believes “It Takes a Network to Defeat a Network” and that working together across geopolitical lines is crucial in defeating cybercrime.

During this presentation, Paul C Dwyer outline's the key factors contributing to the growing “Global Cyber Storm” and providse insight and thoughts on how the EU Strategy with “weapons” such as DORA can be leveraged to help us all prepare and protect against it.
