Bristol Distinguished Address

February 21, 2018 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Enabling human progress in a digital world
Inga Beale DBE (@IngaBeale), CEO of Lloyds of London will deliver a lecture as part of the Bristol Distinguished Address Series entitled ‘Enabling human progress in a digital world.’
The world faces a silent threat so complex and interconnected it has become impossible for any single government, sector or think tank to solve. It could strike a blow to the global economy equivalent to some of the biggest and costliest natural catastrophes in history. And it lurks beneath the incredible benefits that the digital revolution has brought.
It is the multi-layered threat. A cyber-attack. But does society understand the true scale of the threat.
New and emerging technologies like AI, smartphones, driverless cars, drones, smart devices and the internet of things promise all sorts of advantages. For all the good they promise they also carry unquantified and underexplored risks.
As society becomes increasingly dependent on digital technologies, Inga Beale will explore this evolving megathreat, its implications and how people, businesses and governments can protect themselves from financial and reputational ruin.
