Cyber Security: Designing for a new era of threats and complexity.                                                                We are now in a new era of cyber security where the focus has shifted from ‘security by prevention’ to ‘security by design’. With the volume of data, fuelled by connected devices, set to grow exponentially over the next 5 years, security by design is becoming a fundamental development approach to ensure security and privacy of devices and systems are maintained. This track will examine how the design/architecture functions are increasingly driving the cyber security agenda within organisations, cities and society at large.

Customer Success 2.0: A refreshing new lens on customer relationships and retention.                      The tech industry’s is hailing its new Customer Success 2.0 philosophy as a refreshing new strategy for customer growth and revenue expansion. This track will examine…What is customer success 2.0? The strategic importance of a Customer Success Function in tech organisations. Why tech companies are hiring Customer Success Managers (CSMs)? And how to embed a customer success philosophy across your organisation?
 Smart & Connected Cities: Are Smart Cities a smart idea? 
By 2050, 66% of the world’s population is expected to live in urban areas. The challenge will be in supplying these populations with basic resources like safe food, clean water and sufficient energy, while also ensuring overall economic, social and environmental sustainability. This track will examine how leveraging digital technology is the key to delivering a positive impact to urban regions but Smart Cities come from Smart designs. We must design with a citizen-centric approach so genuine human benefit can result and cities remain places to live as well as work.

We will also host two workshops in the afternoon that will focus on

(1) Cyber security and (2) Start-Up & Scale.
