What do you need to do?
This year entrants are asked to produce an essay, submitted electronically, on the following topic:
Cybersecurity on the Edge?
As the capabilities and opportunities of online technologies evolve, how can policy develop to ensure robust levels of security are maintained? With increasingly complex interdependencies within networks, and the challenges presented by edge devices and IoT in general, is ‘security by design’ possible? Can policy move quickly enough to prevent misuse of the data flowing across networks?
In your essay for this year’s Future Leaders’ Competition, you should consider how breaches in cybersecurity might be mitigated, with a particular emphasis on privacy. We want you to consider the challenges to security and privacy as technology develops and transforms, and we’re interested in your views on where responsibility lies for managing these challenges.
