ISF Chief Executive, Steve Durbin and podcast host Tavia Gilbert discuss digital totalitarianism, a topic based on the ISF’s reporting for the Astana Club, an international discussion platform that gathers prominent political figures, diplomats, and experts from the world’s top analytical centers.

Steve outlines the implications that communication platforms have on our data and privacy both now and into the future, the unambiguous definition of digital sovereignty, the key role that both governments and organisations have the global data battle, 5G and more.

A fivefold increase in the volume of data generated by government services, companies, and citizens by 2025 – which is really what we’re talking about – will allow the owners of those sorts of information banks of data to have an absolutely unprecedented level of access to a person’s private life.
