Safety and security through innovation

Even as the rise of the digital world brings us a wealth of rewards, we cannot ignore the risks. Fraud, identity theft and other criminal threats have found new opportunities online. We must weed them out with innovative digital security solutions.

At the same time, we must be mindful of public safety in our increasingly dynamic physical society. A changing world does not have to be a dangerous one, especially when innovators turn their attention to the safety and security of the future.

Closing security gaps with innovative solutions

It began by linking computers, then it made our phones smarter. Now, the internet is connecting our whole world. It is estimated that more than 500 billion objects and devices will be connected to the internet by 2030. The Internet of Things is here, and it will only grow as more products, services and business models come to rely on its power.

This massive web of unseen connections poses unique risks to our digital and physical security. How can we protect ourselves against threats from a network of ubiquitous smart objects? How will we be able to safeguard our privacy and personal safety? The playing field is shifting rapidly, calling on us to develop radical security innovations and shape the future of digital safety.

Proactive innovations in climate safety

Over the past century, average global sea levels have risen by 10 to 20 centimeters. By 2050, they may rise anywhere between 20 and 50 centimeters. In the meantime, rising temperatures will drive ever more unpredictable weather, increasing the risks of storms and flooding.

Our climate is changing, placing vulnerable populations in greater danger while creating new dangers in traditionally safe areas. Any vision for the future of public safety must include proactive measures to minimize these dangers. Innovations in climate safety are necessary to protect society against the threats that will arise in the coming years. Innovators must heed this call to arms by developing new technologies and business models to help minimize the risks of climate change.
