Our safety and freedom are no longer fought for on distant battlefields. Instead, every one of us is on the front line when it comes to protecting our society and economy from global cyber espionage.
That was just one of the sobering thoughts from our Future of Security virtual event held on Thursday 25 March. Samantha Simmonds, host of Sunday Politics, interviewed Major General Jonathan Shaw – an army veteran and former UK Head of Cybersecurity at the Ministry of Defence. As a government adviser, Major General Shaw gave us a fascinating insight into the geo-political shift towards nationalism, civilisationism and the gradual rejection of international laws. He also discussed what the UK is doing to protect us from present and future threats, and the role we must all play in mitigating those risks.
