Emerging technologies enable growth but as vital elements of critical infrastructure, require security consideration from both risk reduction and regulatory compliance perspectives.

How Piotr is building a better working world

"EY teams want to take advantage of technology and fast information flow without drowning in the sea of security issues jeopardizing the businesses, affecting the privacy or disturbing essential social services.

In my work, I focus on strengthening resilience of critical infrastructure, which unlocks the potential for digital transformation. I’m connecting three perspectives:

Business: by crafting strategies to securely advance operations in the age of digital disruption

Government: by creating effective regulations to achieve the desired level of security without slowing down innovation

Community: by connecting professionals across the globe to raise awareness and create a platform for cooperation."
