Reflecting on the World Government Summit 2022

If you had 20 minutes to speak to governments from around the world about cyber security, what would you say?

This was the opportunity - and the challenge - that I was presented with when I was asked to speak at the World Government Summit in Dubai a couple of months ago.

The World Government Summit is a global, neutral, non-profit organization dedicated to shaping the future of governments. The Summit explores the agenda of the next generation of governments, focusing on harnessing innovation and technology to solve universal challenges facing humanity.

This year, there were over 29,000 attendees and government and business leaders from over 140 countries. Other speakers in 2022 included:

  • H.H. Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Crown Prince of Dubai

  • David Malpass, President of World Bank Group

  • Klaus Schwab, Founder and Executive Chairman of World Economic Forum

  • H.E. Mathias Cormann, Secretary General of Organization of Economic Cooperation and Development

  • H.E. Dr. Tedros Ghebreyesus, Director General of World Health Organization

  • H.E. António Guterres, Secretary General of United Nations

And, speakers in previous years have included Barack Obama, Elon Musk and Richard Branson.

So, no pressure or anything 😅

As always, I focused on cutting through the technology and speaking about people.

My session covered:

  • the threat landscape, breaking down the motivations and methods of different cyber threat groups

  • what we can learn from Lapsus$ and Nestlé/Anonymous

  • social engineering - why phishing still works and parallels with mis/disinformation

  • what security culture is

  • how to build a more positive, proactive security culture

Ultimately, I was sharing the message that we can (and must) empower people in cyber security if we want to help communities, companies and countries stay secure.

Check out some highlights (about 3 and a half minutes) from my session here:
