Cyberspace: Bitcoin, business and beyond
Security and responsibility in the age of innovation
Time: 6pm-8.30pm (Arrive 6pm for 6.30pm start)
Cost: $20 (non-members), $15 (members/students), includes light refreshments
Despite the increasing integration of the online and ‘real world’ as we know it, much of cyberspace is still uncharted waters. There are pirates to be outsmarted and there is treasure to be found!
Here’s your chance to learn how experts and entrepreneurs are navigating the opportunities and challenges, and find out what lies ahead as technology advances. Get a glimpse into the personal journeys of two professionals at different stages in their careers, and how technology and innovation is shaping their futures.
We’ll also explore connections between cyberspace and the UN’s Global Goals around Innovation and Infrastructure (Goal 9) and Reduced Inequalities (Goal 10).
