Cybersecurity is a quickly evolving issue, and the Asia-Pacific region is an epicenter for wide-ranging and emerging threats. This panel of experts will cover a lot of ground, both explaining the fundamental vulnerabilities, and the nascent technologies which present both concerns as well as advantages. They will also address some of the strengths and weaknesses of various players, both state-sponsored, dark web, and the kudo-driven culture of hacking among youth. Finally, the panel will take questions about blockchain, quantum computing, cryptocurrencies, and the critical-need cyber security career pathways for which bright minds are being recruited from colleges, high schools and even middle schools.
Start the evening anytime during the 5:30 p.m.-6:30 p.m. reception that will feature a light meal, drinks, and excellent conversation. Find seats at 6:30 p.m. for this YCAPS-JUMP Seminar in Yokosuka’s Honcho Community Center near the U.S. Navy Base’s main gate.
