#WEF2019: The Future Must be Built on Trust

World Economic Forum Global Risks Report 2019 lists cyber attacks as one of the most impactful and likely threats to humanity, alongside natural disasters and weapons of mass destruction. During the annual World Economic Forum meeting in Davos (Switzerland) last week, world leaders gathered to discuss these issues and seek solutions together.  

Innovators from all fields expressed hope and energy that today’s most significant challenges can be solved despite the clear dangers, such as climate change, lack of inclusion, privacy issues. Our CEO Einaras von Gravrock took an active part in the meeting and discussed cybersecurity, AI, 5G and quantum computing with other technology leaders.

The main message is clear: trust is the key to transformation in a global world. Without data security and privacy, there’s no trust. Trust is not a G&A expense; it’s the cost of service for any business.
