CyberFest 2021: The Future of Work

Friday, October 29, 2021

On October 19 and 20, more than 600 participants joined this year’s Cybersecurity and Privacy Festival, the third annual conference bringing together subject matter experts and community members from Stanford, our Ivy+ partners, and more than 140 universities worldwide.

With “The Future of Work” as the overarching theme, sessions focused on helping people protect themselves from the latest privacy and cybersecurity threats, both personally and professionally.

“This year’s conference featured a diverse array of sessions -- technical, non-technical, student-focused, research-focused -- to ask ourselves, what are the long-term implications for privacy and cybersecurity as we enter this new era of work,” said Michael Tran Duff, Stanford’s chief information security officer and chief privacy officer, during the opening session.

Highlights from CyberFest 2021 included:

In addition, two video shorts, KHACK News and Phishing, brought a light-hearted touch to the conference, while illustrating the impact of cyberthreats on our daily lives.

If you missed the event, or want to watch it again, most of the sessions are available to view on the conference website at
