CyAN International VP talks security with former Australian Prime Minister, the Hon. Malcolm Turnbull.

On Friday 25th September, our VP Peter Coroneos had a discussion with the Hon. Malcolm Turnbull, 29th Prime Minister of Australia on “A Deep Dive into the Unthinkable – Geopolitics, the internet and democracy“.

Geopolitics, the internet and democracy: How does this all play out? We consider questions that may define our future—nationally, internationally and as a species.

Is there a clear path for a nation like Australia to find its own voice in the region? What is driving current regional tensions and is there a middle way that avoids the prospect of conflict, while respecting legitimate claims to sovereignty? What are the implications for future generations if we get this wrong?

And how do we get this right when faced with seemingly insurmountable obstacles? How has the subversion of the internet accelerated these trends and can they be reversed?

For those who missed it, the discussion has been recorded and is available below.

Enjoy !
