IOG’s Policy Crunch Returns for a New Season

2 minute read

By Jeff Kinder, Executive Director, Science and Innovation

CYBERSECURITY. SCIENCE AND SOCIETY. FUTURE OF WORK. THE FIRST THREE TOPICS IN POLICY CRUNCH SEASON 2.

Following a very successful inaugural year, Policy Crunch, IOG’s monthly speaker series, is back for a second season of provocative and informative talks. This season’s theme is “Disruption and Convergence in Public Policy and Governance” and will feature topics ranging from ethics in a digital age to the new nature of regulation.

Policy Crunchesare free of charge and take place between 5:30pm and 7:30pm at the IOG’s offices in the Byward Market (60 George Street). Sessions include plenty of time for questions and discussion with participants, as well as time for mingling and networking. Live broadcasts will also be available on the IOG Youtube Channel and on Twitter at #PolicyCrunch.

On October 15, join us for a session on Cybersecurity.

Never before has the creation and preservation of value depended so much on effective cybersecurity, nor has the means to “getting security right” been so complex. Many aspects of traditional security management are urgently being reconsidered as security teams seek to both stay aligned with the characteristics of the modern enterprise, and stay ahead of the threats. It is important for organizations to cut through the market noise and gain a different perspective on practical ways forward.

Informed by the collective voice of our clients, as well as our own security evolution, this presentation will provide insight into current threats, discuss how a risk-based approach is critical to establishing an effective cybersecurity program, and identify key steps for preparedness.

The coming months will see sessions on:

Renegotiating the Social Contract between Science and Society – November 12

The Future of Work: Beyond the Hype – December 10

And there are many more to come in 2020! Visit the series page here.
