Event description

Description


It’s hard to imagine life without the Internet today, and this year marks its 30th anniversary. From our smartphones to big data, we are irreversibly dependent on the digital innovations of the past few decades.

As the online world increasingly spills into the real world, urgent questions are being asked about the need to regulate the world’s digital platforms. How do we govern and enforce Internet controls? Where is the cyber frontier, and how is it being weaponised? What big data and privacy issues we should be thinking about? And why has it taken us so long to catch up?

The speakers

  • Bart Hogeveen, Australian Strategic Policy Institute
  • Dr Aim Sinpeng, University of Sydney
  • Dr Damien Spry, University of South Australia
  • Chair: Professor Michele Ford, University of Sydney


This event is co-presented with Sydney Southeast Asia Centre (SSEAC). Every year SSEAC hosts the ASEAN Forum, which this year is taking place on 16 August, and explores the theme of ‘ASEAN and the Digital Revolution’.
