Cyber security and the media: Lunch with Luke Dembosky
From alleged Russian hacking of the US presidential election to the pandemic of data and financial theft, global cyber crime is emerging as one of the great challenges of our age – for governments, businesses and individuals.
The rapid proliferation of cybercriminal gangs, government surveillance and hack attacks from nation states is fuelling a cybersecurity industry that is predicted to be worth more than $200 billion by 2021. It’s also a growing challenge for the media – both in exposing the villains of cyber crime and defending sources from official surveillance.
Luke Dembosky is uniquely placed to talk about the big issues involved. He is a former high-ranking Justice Department official who oversaw some of the United States’ biggest cyber security cases. He has worked with authorities from Australia and many other countries in operations to dismantle global cyber threats, and has represented the Department in cyber negotiations with China, Russia, and at the United Nations.
Dembosky is currently co-chair of the global cyber practice at the law firm of Debevoise & Plimpton.
At this special media lunch Luke Dembosky will talk frankly about his experiences fighting cyber threats over the past 15 years – and join a Q&A discussion with leading investigative journalist Richard Baker of The Age.
