Plenary Keynote Address: What’s Next for Cryptography? How CSE Balances Privacy and Innovation in the Public and Private Sectors (P10b)

Maintaining one’s privacy in today’s interconnected digital world is becoming more challenging with each new technological advance. But how can organizations continue to be innovative, while also integrating adequate privacy settings into their products and services? With almost no one understanding it, cryptography has quietly become one of the only solutions to help retain our privacy online.

Scott Jones, Senior Assistant Deputy Minister of IT Security at the Communications Security Establishment (CSE), will discuss how cryptography affects privacy and innovation in the modern digital world, what CSE is doing to respond to the challenges posed by emerging technologies, and how the organization is branching beyond government to secure Canada’s critical infrastructure.
