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?

Fen Osler Hampson, Director of Global Security and Politics at CIGI, and Eric Jardine, CIGI Fellow, demonstrate why trust matters, how it is being eroded and how the essential glue of the Internet can be restored as they discuss the main findings of their book Look Who’s Watching: Surveillance, Treachery and Trust Online. Mr. Osler Hampson and Mr. Jardine are joined by cybersecurity experts Neil Desai, Director, Corporate Affairs of Magnet Forensics and J. Paul Haynes, CEO, eSentire Inc.
