TEDxBarcelonaSalon - Living in (cybernetic) fragility

About this event :

On the 11th of May, a malicious software – the virus WannaCry was able to compromise various computers of the internal network of Telefonica. This caused the company to ask all of its employees of the Madrid office to switch off their computers. Various other companies worldwide have been attacked as well. How could this happen? Can this occur again in the future? How fragile are we respect to cyberattacks and can we protect ourselves from these threats? How? Deepak Daswani
We want to discuss about all these doubts and anxieties at our next event TEDxBarcelonaSalon. In order to guide us with expert knowledge we invited Deepak Daswani, an expert in cyber security of the multinational company Deloitte. He was Security Evangelist at INCIBE (Instituto Nacional de Cibeseguridad), from October 2013 until July 2015. He is co-founder of Hackron, a Congress of Hacking and Cybersecurity of Canarias which takes place every year in Tenerife.

The subject of cybersecurity is very complex and for an introduction into this subject we recommend to watch these TED talks:

Mikko Hypponen: Three types of online attack
James Lyne: Everyday cybercrime – and what you can do about it

We will use the content of these talks for our discussion after listing to Deepaks talk. You can watch these talks at home or together with us at our event. If you decide to watch the talks with us please arrive already at 18:15 because we will show the two talks from 18:15 to 18:45 (in Eglish with Spanish subtitles). But, of course, you can also come directly at 19:00.
