The Future of Privacy and Security

As a technology futurist, Shara spends a lot of her time speaking to audiences about the ways that technologies can be used for innovation in all kinds of vertical industries. Just as importantly, she also talks about the dark side of technology and what can go wrong with respect to cybersecurity and privacy.

In this keynote speech, Shara goes a bit dark side — talking about security and privacy: and it can get a little bit scary when describing the things that can go wrong, and in some cases how technologies and people’s trust have already been weaponised.

Shara’s purpose in talking about the things that can go wrong with technology is to educate delegates so they can take measures to prevent disasters from happening in the first place. In fact, her number one goal with this speech about the “Future of Privacy and Security” is to alert you to what can happen, so that you can be empowered to ensure that it does not happen in your organisation. And, also to alert organisations, governments and regulators to legal areas that have yet to catch up to our current technological capabilities ? as well as provide a futurist’s perspective on new areas that such as AI + Ethics, Brain Machine Interfaces and other technologies that are not even contemplated by today’s legislative framework.

Topics include the intersection of cybersecurity and privacy with:

  • Smart Cities
  • The Internet of Things
  • Augmented and Virtual Reality
  • Social Media
  • Mobile apps
  • Gigantic data warehouses
  • The impact of GDPR
  • Massive hacks and data breaches
  • Healthcare data
  • Artificial intelligence (voice recognition, image and facial recognition, emotion detection, robots, drones, +++)
  • Going into the Future – the impact this may have on humanity

This speech is highly customised to a client’s brief and can include many different topics and technologies.

Security, Privacy + Ethics: Challenges in our Digital Future

Is your business safe from future Cyber threats? Futurist Shara Evans opens our eyes on how emerging technologies can be leveraged by cybercriminals in new and inventive ways

including examples that may seem straight out of a science fiction movie, but are eminently possible with technology available now or in the very near future.

And, it’s not just about security, it’s also important to understand the privacy and ethical issues involved with emerging technologies.

We’re already seeing the increased integration of artificial intelligence-based devices and applications like Amazon Alexa, Google Home, Siri, Cortana and many more on our phones, computers and stand-alone appliances. By collecting big data about individuals and companies, are governments and mega technology corporations putting us at risk? Is your company exposed to massive revenue loss because of data breaches that arise from third-party use of your data?

Technologies like facial recognition, emotion recognition, augmented reality, artificial intelligence, drones, robots and the Internet of Things will radically change our world over the coming decade, but will these same technologies open up new attack vectors for cyber criminals?

Shara will also talk about the future of humanity, and how nanotechnologies and augmentation of our bodies may change what it means to be human, and along the way destroy our privacy forever.

By showing how and where your sensitive business and personal information may be compromised, Shara will raise your risk awareness and provide you with insights that will help you navigate the brave new world of ubiquitous connectivity.

Can you afford not to understand the imminent threats that lie ahead?

Privacy: Will it be gone forever?

In this keynote speech, technology futurist Shara Evans spills the beans on some very disturbing trends that will impact every business and consumer. Namely, there are a range of emerging technologies and business practices that are impacting our privacy, as well as increasing the risk of security breaches — including identity theft.

For instance, we’re glued to our smartphones, and putting more and more financial information on them. But, have you considered whether or not your phone is really secure? Or, how apps might use your information? By collecting big data about individuals, are governments and corporations putting us at risk?

Technologies like facial recognition, emotion recognition, augmented reality, artificial intelligence, drones, robots and the Internet of Things will radically change our world over the coming decade, but will these same technologies open up new attack vectors for cyber criminals?

By showing how and where your sensitive business and personal information may be compromised, Shara will raise your risk awareness and provide you with insights that will help you navigate the brave new world of ubiquitous connectivity.

From SciFi to Reality: New Attack Vectors for Cyber Criminals?

The digital world is a constantly changing landscape, not only bringing us new opportunities but along with that also potential threats.

Do not fear! Futurist Shara Evans, will bring to our attention the threats and danger lurking in cyber criminal world in this keynote speech, describing an array of emerging technologies along with their potential for opening up new attack vectors for cyber criminals. By showing how and where sensitive business and personal information may be compromised in the future, from spying drones to connected cars to mobile apps, Shara will provide you with insights that will help you navigate the new world of ubiquitous connectivity and how these lessons can relate to securing your most valuable information.

Topics covered include:

  • Current State of Play: Mobile Apps, Social Media, Hacking Targets
  • Gadgets: Wearables, Augmented Reality, Facial Recognition
  • Health Services + Embedded Technology
  • Home Automation
  • Next Generation Vehicles
  • Air, Land + Sea: Expect to see Robots everywhere!

Privacy: Will it be gone forever? What every Company Director, Executive, Business Owner and Consumer needs to know

Have you ever considered the following questions?

We’re glued to our smartphones, and putting more and more financial information on them. But, have you considered whether or not your phone is really secure?

Or, how apps might use your information? By collecting big data about individuals, are governments and corporations putting us at risk? Are companies exposing themselves to massive revenue loss because of data breaches?

Technologies like facial recognition, emotion recognition, augmented reality, artificial intelligence, drones, robots and the Internet of Things will radically change our world over the coming decade, but will these same technologies open up new attack vectors for cyber criminals?
