Cybersecurity and Security
The Internet is frequently on fire, with overseas cyberattacks hitting public services like healthcare at home, data breaches being the new school “snow days,” and small towns and local governments largely unable to fend off ransomware attacks on their own. Nation-state hackers are undermining human rights and the security and privacy of millions by hacking into phones using undisclosed security flaws. And the emerging world of web3 balances precariously on the fragile foundations of Web 2.0’s problematic past. This year, TechCrunch is taking on some of the biggest security/privacy problems head-on at Disrupt 2023 with the sharpest minds and pros in the industry. By drawing on firsthand reporting from techcranch's security desk this past year we’re exploring the most pressing and important issues facing tech giants, startups, and billionses of citizens around the world with people who know the challenges best.
