Trust and security in a digitalized society

Technology should serve the people, requiring trust that our core values will be protected in this new domain. In episode #19 of Campus 10178, the ESMT Berlin podcast, we share an ESMT Open Lecture held on March 2, 2022 with Heli Tiirmaa-Klaar, director of the Digital Society Institute (DSI) at ESMT Berlin. Using diverse examples from her vast experience as an international cybersecurity expert, Tiirmaa-Klaar demonstrates what is necessary to develop a trustworthy digital society that serves its citizens and illustrates how different stakeholders – including the private sector, policymakers, and academia – can help achieve this goal. She also examines the public policy response necessary to balance out the disparities caused by rapid innovation and the growth of big tech.

The lecture ends with a Q&A session moderated by Laurens Cerulus, cybersecurity editor and deputy technology editor at POLITICO Europe.
