The Cybersecurity Tech Accord is a public commitment among now more than 130 global technology companies   to protect and empower civilians online and to improve the security, stability and resilience of cyberspace. Since forming the Cybersecurity Tech Accord, signatories have supported initiatives on email and routing security, implemented Domain-based Message Authentication, Reporting and Conformance (DMARC) in their own operations, participated in global requests for comments on the UN’s new High Level Panel on Digital Cooperation, and endorsed the Paris Call for Trust and Security in Cyberspace as an early supporter. Additionally, the group has coordinated with like-minded organizations such as the Global Cyber Alliance, the Internet Society, and the Global Forum on Cyber Expertise (GFCE).

The 2020 Davos Tech Accord panel session will bring together technology industry leaders for an insightful and critical conversation about 21 century cybersecurity challenges and the Tech Accord commitments for their address.

Inspired at Davos through interactive workshops, is a bestselling book co-authored by Carlos Moreira and David Fergusson, released in June 2019 and subject of the forthcoming TV series.

This year, the roundtable session will focus on the future of human sustainability with the rise of algorithmic technologies. Subject experts will explore how platform coupled with AI agents, data mining, machine learning, and natural language search, will innovate the most responsible revolutionary technologies for our future.

We all agree that it is a precarious balancing act between technology and humanity in the application of AI, blockchain, cybersecurity, IoT, data management, and robotics to the future of education, employment, communication, transportation, communities, security, government, food, finance, entertainment and health.

Grounded in a human-centric foundation, provides an ethical platform for developers, enablers and users of new technologies to prioritize keeping people at the center of gravity in the relationship between woman/man and machine.

With its roots in the development of secure identity management, WISeKey has stood at the forefront of providing greater security for data authentication since 1999. In the future, platform, secured by WISeKey, could seamlessly ensure that technological innovations protect humans in the all environments. Our co-existence with artificial intelligence will challenge all conventions of ethical norms as we have known them, as we continue to digitize our work environment, our social interaction, and our physical activities.

Join us, in this provocative dialogue, as we discuss how the future of everything will rest solely on how we establish responsible parameters for the relationship between technology and humanity.
