12:30–13:00

Dialogue

A time of change: how is 2020 transforming our attitude to digitalisation?

It has been many years since the Fourth Industrial Revolution started. This event had basically divided people into two groups — those who believed in digital prosperity, and the skeptics who had many reasons to doubt new technology and the opportunities that it offered. Now, we are seeing a change in this situation — following the outbreak of COVID the world found itself in a state where it no longer had a choice but to use digital communications. How will this affect our mindset on digitalisation?



Speakers:

Herman Gref, CEO, Chairman of the Executive Board, Sberbank
The Rt. Hon. Tony Blair, Prime Minister, Great Britain and Northern Ireland (1997-2007)

Interview

Trust or fear: what will be the main incentive for cooperation after the crisis?

When a crisis comes and we need help, there are two main feelings that drive people to reach out to others — trust and fear. We call on those we trust and do it in fear of not being able to cope with it ourselves. However, if the latter feeling is quick to catch, the former needs a lot more time and effort to be built.. During the pandemic, we all witnessed a rise of cybercrime and came together to deal with this threat. But what will drive and influence the global community after this crisis? Will we be able to build trust and join forces against cybercrime or will we need another crisis to unite us once again?



Speaker:

Jeremy Jurgens, Chief Business Officer and Member of the Managing Board, World Economic Forum

13:30–13:50

Interview

Building secure interconnected world — what is the role of telecom sector?

The coronavirus pandemic has given a boost to digitalisation. The world is becoming increasingly interconnected — various spheres of life are going online, systems are being automated and data is exchanged without human involvement. New technologies such as 5G, Artificial Intelligence, Internet of Things act as a catalyst to these processes, but at the same time they create new opportunities for cybercriminals. How to protect business and users in this new environment? What is the role of the telecommunications sector in creating a truly secure digital world?

Speakers:

Sebastian Tolstoy, Head of Eastern Europe & Central Asia and General Director Ericsson Russia, Ericsson
Alexey Kornya, President, CEO, Chairman of the Management Board, MTS

Stream 2. The power of information

13:55–14:25

Dialogue

Fake news — a new ‘digital’ pandemic?

Many people say, information is the most powerful weapon on earth. Information will continue spreading as long as there are people on the planet. Digital communication channels make this easier and faster. Cybercriminals take advantage of this phenomenon, making fake news one of the most powerful tools used to their advantage. Does this mean that when we become even more dependent on digital channels, fake news will become one of the main threats to humanity?

Nik Gowing, BBC World News main presenter (1996-2014); Founder and Director, Thinking the Unthinkable

Interview

Doing your homework. How to prepare for a cyber crisis?

We live in the era of global digital transformation, opening truly unlimited opportunities for humanity. The pandemic crisis has accelerated this transformation, and businesses had to adapt to new conditions. However, many companies were not ready for this and they had to go through serious challenges transforming their processes to ensure security of their operations. What lessons can we take away from this? How can we properly assess the risks of a possible crisis and be ready when it hits?

Speakers:

Jacqueline Kernot, Partner in Cybersecurity, Ernst & Young
Hector Rodriguez, Senior Vice President, Regional Risk Officer for Central and Eastern Europe, Middle East and Africa, Visa

Cybercrime in 2020: what has changed?

2020 has started off with a paradigm shift. The change in working patterns, fast transition to more online-based operations, the economic crisis — all this has emboldened cybercriminals. What changes are we witnessing now in the cyberthreat landscape? Are we to experience a long-lasting surge of cybercrime? How can we prevent it?
