Do we need a new world wide web for the new geopolitical landscape? A “Cold War 2” as one of our guests called it. A war where countries are shooting digital bullets.
The war in Ukraine is proving to be a real-time lab study of staying one step ahead of the hackers and finding ways to protect and preserve research data. It has highlighted the need for the global academic community to establish a secure scientific communication channel with all the necessary encryption to ensure the integrity of research.
And we have seen the need to collect, collate, and protect information that may be needed to prove wartime atrocities.
