You can listen to the full recording of my conversation at South by Southwest 2023.
“The collision of cyberspace and world politics is already here, and the digital freedoms of internet users are more at risk than ever before. There has never been a more critical moment to safeguard our online identities and digital freedoms against bad actors and cyber threats. This conversation with Garry Kasparov, Avast Security Ambassador and international chess legend, and Michal Pechoucek, Gen Chief Technology Officer, will discuss today’s global cyber landscape in light of the war in Ukraine and recent cyber attacks on nations, communities and companies. Garry and Michal will discuss cyberwar activities including DDoS attacks, espionage, and ransomware attacks on critical infrastructure, their effects on citizens and how to help the digital landscape be fairer and more equitable.”
