SASIG North: Preparing People for Technology's Challenges

Event date
Port Sunlight, Liverpool

Technology is evolving at a dizzying pace. The emergence of AI in the popular imagination – thank you, ChatGPT! – has raised the spectre of machines replacing humans to the point of our extinction, but Skynet is not here yet, nor will it be for the foreseeable future. People will always be important in the risk equation.

How we address the rise of machines has become a perennial question for society. How do we improve our awareness of the increasing threats in cyberspace? How do we identify and develop the new skills emerging technology demands? And how do we change our mindset to better prepare ourselves as organisations and individuals for the worst while continuing to hope for the best?

SASIG of the North is once again hosted by Unilever in the historic and beautiful surrounds of Port Sunlight, which exemplifies why people matter. We’re also opening this event to non-SASIG members. Our speakers and panellists will consider how we can take the initiative on skills, make ourselves more resilient, and normalise incidents to tackle them more effectively. We will look at recently adopted technologies, their insecure legacies, how we can best mitigate this, and why the fundamentals of digital hygiene remain a constant that we must aspire to achieve.
