Security will change more in the next 10 years than it has in the last century. We are moving into an era in which cyber will solve many of our problems, but will also open up new vulnerabilities. Access to data on an astonishing scale will deliver “knowledge-intensive security” but will also raise difficult questions about protection, privacy and access. Many of these challenges are about interaction of human beings and the internet.

In 2025 everything we buy that costs more than twenty pounds will have an IP address. The increasing application of high technology to everyday life, including energy, food and transport, has the potential to result in new kinds of cyber attacks. We are likely to see interference with unmanned vehicles and robotic devices. There will be attacks against connected devices with direct physical impact on human beings, ranging from cars to personal technology. We will see the increasing theft of bio-authentication components.

This conference brings together the foremost experts and scientists to forecast the impact of the digital age on our security in the next decade.
