Companies and Cyber-Security in the Years to 2020

Cyber-risks are changing all the time, requiring companies and governments to react very quickly. However, a merely reactive approach would be detrimental to the implementation of efficient strategies in this area.

In 2014, Futuribles International carried out a study on Companies and Cyber-Security in the Years to 2020”. This study aims to situate cyber-security issues in a systemic and strategic medium-term perspective that will help to establish risk reduction strategies at different levels (states, companies, individuals). The purpose of this study is to offer participant organizations a clear, documented view of the possible changes in their environment by 2020 that could aid in the design of their cyber-security strategies. The synthesis of the study is available here.

China’s Aiming at the Greek REEs

Following the first international conference on rare earth elements[1], which was held in Greece in September 2014, the Chinese proposed to the Greeks to establish a technical and scientific cooperation in this field and subsequently to exploit the latters’ existing reserves. But behind this interesting proposal for Greece is the question of strategic security of Europe that defined the REEs as critical materials for its very high technology industry.

From 4 to 7 September 2014, was therefore held in ...

Resource Politics for a Fair Future

From the extraction of tar sands in North America and Congo to large-scale land purchases in Asia and Africa, it is a fact that resources are a godsend. But the distribution of profits is not fair and poverty can not be reduced. This report introduces the notion of Resource Politics and offers a new perspective combining democracy, ecology and human rights, which would be the basis for fair and sustainable Resource Politics. It is the result of a participatory approach ...

Gene Drives : Powerful Tool or Terrible Danger to Global Ecosystems ?

The idea of gene drives, which could be broadly described as selective breeding in a lab, first emerged in the 1960’s. The publication last July of two studies, “Concerning RNA-Guided Gene Drives for the Alteration of Wild Populations” and “Regulating gene drives” by a team of Harvard scientists renewed this field by outlining a technically feasible general method for spreading altered traits through wild populations of sexually reproducing species over many generations. This new technique, inspired by Austin Burt ...
