The Cyber Hacks Podcast by Gemserv

How secure is your business from a potential cyber attack?

In this exciting new podcast series, our experts investigate emerging cyber threats and new capabilities which are pushing the boundaries of our understanding in the world of cyber security.

We will regularly be joined by recognised experts, authors and thought leaders as we explore the cyber security challenges of tomorrow and how we approach them today. Register your interest to be notified about the latest episodes, and listen and subscribe to The Cyber Hacks.



Episode 4 (Part 1 & 2): Power, Corruption and Lies

In our new exciting episode of Cyber Hacks, Adam Harrison interviews three of the most respected researchers and published authorities on the subject of disinformation, power and the influence of extremist groups. We examine the dynamics between these elements which propelled the events of the 6th Jan, what this means for social media and the residual impact of the events on western democracy.

Episode 3: The Finger of Suspicion

What is the new and exciting role of A.I and cyber security in the detection and arrest of those committing serious and disturbing crimes in our society? We delve into the successes, challenges and future direction of the use of A.I in modern forensic science with our internationally recognised experts.

This episode will provide fascinating insights as to how “H-unique” is changing the way we see A.I when it is used as a force for good as an extremely valuable tool in the arsenal of those who pursue serious criminals in partnership with the police, to help protect our most vulnerable.

Episode 2: Privacy and Consent

We discuss the individual privacy issues and risks to ‘ownership’ of biometrics in respect of synthetic media. If everything can be faked and everything can be denied, how do we maintain provenance in the digital world we live in?

Key topics include the protection of privacy rights for individuals, digital biometrics and the moral and legal issues raised around consent. Synthetic media could herald the death of the ‘right to a private life’. This episode covers how we can balance freedom of expression with privacy protections and address these challenges in respect of the rights of individuals.

Episode 1: The Problem With Truth

We are delighted to welcome special guest Nina Schick to the first episode of The Cyber Hacks podcast. Nina is a distinguished researcher, author and broadcaster with a specialism in deep fakes and disinformation.

The first episode highlights the way in which AI is being deliberately manipulated in a cynical attempt to change the collective perception of the truth of actual events and our understanding of them. It discusses the malicious efforts of the highly motivated, capable bad actors that are attempting to further erode public confidence in our government, democratic institutions and public figures. Key topics include, what response and leadership in this area can we expect from western democracies and how do we protect ‘Truth’ in the age of synthetic media.
