LINX Presents - Emily Taylor

New IP, China's project to make new Internet standards: you must ask the right question.

When news broke that China was seeking to standardize a replacement for TCP/IP through the UN's International Telecommunication Union (ITU), the response from the engineering community in the West was derisive. But are we asking the right questions? History shows that in standards wars, the best technology does not always win. To understand China's strategy, we need to ask different questions, like how would these proposals assist national strategies in China? Why is the choice of venue, ITU, significant for internet governance and trade reasons? Might we end up with a splinternet, even if we don't need one?

Current cyber security threats and what to do?
It is time to stop being naive when it comes to Cyber Security. Many companies will be caught if they are. Even size doesn’t help you. And it is very important to be not just reactive, but pro-active. You can’t just be average, you’ve got to be the best you can. With examples of earlier incidents Anne-Marie will point out need of immediate action.
