Future-oriented global thinker, best-selling author and consultant
Global Security Advisor, Singularity University (2011-present)
Expert on the disruptive impact of technology on security, business and international affairs
Marc Goodman works to prevent future crimes and acts of terrorism, even those security threats not yet invented. Over the past twenty years, he has built his expertise in next generation security threats such as cyber crime, cyber terrorism and information warfare working with organisations such as Interpol, the United Nations, NATO, the Los Angeles Police Department and the US Government.
As Singularity University’s Global Security Advisor, Marc examines the use of advanced science and technology to address humanity’s grand challenges. Moreover, he serves as SU’s Faculty Chair for Policy, Law & Ethics, where he focuses on the consequences, implications and virtues of exponential technologies in our lives.
In addition, Marc is the founding director of Future Crimes Institute, a think tank and clearinghouse that researches and advises on the security and risk implications of emerging technologies. His current areas of research spotlight the security implications of disruptive technologies: artificial intelligence, the social data revolution, synthetic biology, virtual worlds, robotics, ubiquitous computing and location-based services.
Marc is the best-selling author of “Future Crimes: Everything is Connected, Everyone is Vulnerable and What We Can Do About It” (2015), in which he exposes the alarming ways criminals, corporations, and even countries are using new and emerging technologies. He is frequently covered in the press, having been featured by CNN, ABC, NBC, BBC, Fox News, The Guardian, Le Monde and PBS, among others.
In recognition of his professional experience, Marc was asked by the Secretary General of the United Nations International Telecommunications Union (ITU) to join his High Level Experts Group on Global Cybersecurity. He has also worked with other UN entities including the United Nations Institute for Disarmament Research on cyber warfare and has served as a Senior Researcher for the United Nations Counter-Terrorism Task Force on technical measures to counter terrorist use of the Internet.
