Deep Dive into the Unthinkable: A Dialogue with The Hon. Malcolm Turnbull

Online

Event Details

A Dialogue between The Hon. Malcolm Turnbull, 29th Prime Minister of Australia and Peter Coroneos … Friday 25 Sept.

About this Event



Geopolitics, the internet and democracy: How does this all play out? We consider questions that may define our future—nationally, internationally and as a species.

Is there a clear path for a nation like Australia to find its own voice in the region? What is driving current regional tensions and is there a middle way that avoids the prospect of conflict, while respecting legitimate claims to sovereignty? What are the implications for future generations if we get this wrong?

And how do we get this right when faced with seemingly insurmountable obstacles? How has the subversion of the internet accelerated these trends and can they be reversed?

These are some of the hard questions we will consider when you tune in on 25th September.. The livestream event link will be sent to registered attendees 48 hours before the event.

About the speakers

The Hon. Malcolm Turnbull

Australia’s 29th Prime Minister (2015-2018) had international careers in law, business and the media before entering politics at the age of 50.  As Prime Minister, he reformed Australia’s personal income tax, education and childcare systems, oversaw the legalisation of same sex marriage and announced the construction of the biggest pumped hydro scheme in the southern hemisphere.  Globally, Mr Turnbull played a leading role in reviving the Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP-11) after the United States withdrew. He also struck deals with US Presidents Obama and Trump to accept refugees who tried to arrive in Australia illegally by boat.  As a lawyer, Mr Turnbull successfully defended former MI5 agent Peter Wright against the British Government in the “Spycatcher” trial before entering business where he enjoyed a successful career with Goldman Sachs and launched multiple technology based businesses in Australia.  Since leaving politics, Mr Turnbull has resumed his business career, including as a senior adviser at KKR and speaks regularly at global conferences.

Peter Coroneos

International Vice President of the Cybersecurity Advisors Network and CEO of Icon Cyber. Best known as former longstanding CEO of Australia’s Internet Industry Association. Twice invited to the White House to brief the Obama Administration’s national cyber security leadership on an industry wide anti-botnet scheme pioneered in Australia. Its US derivative ultimately covered around 270 million broadband users or about 90% of the US user base. Peter is an author and recognised authority on cyber policy, and led national initiatives addressing spam, streaming, copyright, broadband, privacy and online child protection. He had (until recently) passionately believed in the power of the internet to transform societies for the good, and strived for over 20 years to contribute to defining, promoting and extending the level of trust necessary for this to occur. Now he’s not so sure, although his faith in humanity remains intact.
