Yahoo Mail. Ashley Madison. Meltdown and Spectre. Each of these hacks has served as yet another reminder of the trust individual users place in the internet each day. Is this trust well-placed? What steps can be taken to better ensure our security online? Join Fen Osler Hampson, Director of Global Security and Politics at CIGI, and Eric Jardine, CIGI Senior Fellow, as they discuss the main findings of their book Look Who’s Watching: Surveillance, Treachery and Trust Online. Joined by local cybersecurity experts Neil Desai (Director, Corporate Affairs of Magnet Forensics) and J. Paul Haynes (Chief Executive Officer of eSentire Inc.), Fen and Eric will demonstrate why trust matters, how it is being eroded and how the essential glue of the Internet can be restored.
