Live from Davos: Crisis in a digital world

As industry and government leaders gather in person for the 2022 World Economic Forum, GZERO Media is hosting a special livestream to discuss “Crisis in a digital world” on Monday, May 23, at 5pm CEST/11am EDT.

Ian Bremmer, President of Eurasia Group and GZERO Media; Elizabeth Cousens, President and CEO of the United Nations Foundation; Brad Smith, President and Vice Chair of Microsoft; Helle Thorning-Schmidt, former Prime Minister of Denmark; and moderator Nicholas Thompson, CEO of The Atlantic and former editor-in-chief of WIRED, will be joined by global leaders at a time of crisis. What role and responsibility does the tech industry have as cyber threats continue to grow globally, and how could the hybrid war in Ukraine change the geopolitical landscape?

The livestream will ask these questions, and more, as part of GZERO’s overall coverage of the WEF, and is the latest in the Webby-nominated Global Stage series, a partnership between GZERO and Microsoft that examines critical issues at the intersection of technology, politics, and society.

Identifying cyber threats, urgent priority for tech companies – Microsoft’s Brad Smith | GZERO Media

"We're identifying new cyber threats and attacks every day" – Microsoft’s Brad Smith

Cyber threats are the new frontier of war. That's why companies like Microsoft are investing heavily in the capability to identify new threats and attempted attacks. “We work every day to make sure that we’re identifying new threats and attacks, regardless of where they’re from,” said Microsoft President Brad Smith at the Munich Security Conference. This includes monitoring infiltrations and alerting companies, countries and sometimes even the public, as needed, in a timely fashion, he explained.

Smith spoke with moderator David Sanger in GZERO Media's Global Stage livestream discussion at the Munich Security Conference.

Ian Bremmer: Cybersecurity Cooperation at Home & Abroad | Global Stage | GZERO Media

Highlights from our live conversation on cybersecurity challenges

Cyber is a tool, and sometimes a weapon. Whether used for commercial gain or for attacks on critical infrastructure, actions taken in cyberspace affect you directly. This means that even the most mundane realities of everyday life are vulnerable to hackers.

In our live May 18 event, "Beyond SolarWinds: Securing Cyberspace," we asked our speakers what we can do to safeguard cyberspace from future attacks.

Ian Bremmer, president of Eurasia Group and GZERO Media, (above) explains "there are three different levels of cooperation we desperately need to reduce a threat that right now is growing exponentially for our national securities at home." At one level, there needs to be greater coordination between the private and public sectors in the US. It needs to be "much deeper, much more structural, much more efficient" than what we currently have, says Bremmer.

Beyond SolarWinds: Securing Cyberspace

A (global) solution for cybercrime

The recent ransomware cyberattack on the Colonial Pipeline in the US has exposed how vulnerable critical infrastructure is to hackers, whether they are motivated by money or politics. What can we do about this?

Part of the way forward is acknowledging that there is no longer a distinction between cyber and physical security. The world runs on tech, so people are right to worry about it, Microsoft President Brad Smith said during a livestream discussion on cybersecurity hosted by GZERO Media and Microsoft. The conversation, "Beyond SolarWinds: Securing Cyberspace," held in collaboration with the Munich Security Conference as part of their "Road to Munich" series, was moderated by former US Homeland Security senior official Juliette Kayyem.
