Changing Face of Communication- 2018 Trends and Predictions

Tudor Mihailescu, Co-Founder at “GovFaces” and Forbes 30 under 30 Europe Nominee from Switzerland participates in Risk Roundup to discuss the “Changing Face of Communication: 2018 Trends and Predictions”.


The advances in information, communication and digitization technologies has transformed the way individuals and entities across nations: its government, industries, organizations and academia (NGIOA) connects, communicates and collaborates across cyberspace, geospace and space (CGS).

Today, technologies have come to rule and even dictate the terms on which communication is undertaken across NGIOA. So, when we, individually and collectively, are at the crossroads of major technological changes as we are now; where new communication technologies are constantly being unveiled and the older ones are constantly being modified or updated; it is important to understand and evaluate its impact on individuals and entities across NGIOA, trends across CGS and future predictions for humanity.

Since relationships and results within, between and across NGIOA depend on communication and connectivity, the existing and emerging communication channels across CGS, independently and collectively are playing a key role in shaping the very foundation and future of not only communication and connectivity, but the sharing economy that the world is passionately trying to build. So, when we change the tools and technology, driver and nature of communication and connectivity, we are in essence changing the relationships of NGIOA and we are changing the results across CGS—thereby changing the very configuration of human culture, civilization and fundamentals of society.

It is important that we understand and evaluate this further:

  • What is driving the on-going revolution in communication channels today?
  • How is communication different today?
  • What are the trends for communication in 2018?
  • What shifts are currently happening around communication because of conscious consumers?
  • Since all human relationships depend on communication, what is the effect of new communication channels on human relationships, society and culture?
  • When cyberspace is all about human inhabitants that are working independently and collectively to create this alternate world, what is necessary to empower this revolution in communication?
  • Will technology help us see global information relationships in positive new ways?
  • Are we benefiting to the extent we should be, by exploring the potential of the new communication tools?
  • Is social networking beyond displacing email and text messaging as the preferred method of communication?
  • While technology driven communication revolution seems inevitable, will the progress and advances be uniform across NGIOA?
  • What are the existing and emerging complex challenges of communication?


Today, no component of a nation can operate in a world that is not timely in their action, reaction and communication. Time is now for individuals and entities across nations: its government, industries, organizations and academia (NGIOA) level their “communication” playing field for what the global connectivity has to offer across CGS. Time is now to understand the “Changing Nature of Communication”!

About the Host of Risk Roundup
Jayshree Pandya (née Bhatt) is a visionary leader, who is working passionately with imagination, insight and boldness to achieve Global Peace through Risk Management. It is her strong belief that collaboration within, between and across nations: its government, industries, organizations and academia (NGIOA) will be mutually beneficial to all—for not only in the identification and understanding of critical risks facing one nation, but also for managing the interconnected and interdependent risks facing all nations. She calls on nations to build a shared sense of identity and purpose, for how the Security Centric Integrated Cyberspace, Geospace and Space Risk Management framework is structured will determine the survival and success of nations in the Digital Global Age. She sees the big picture, thinks strategically and works with the power of intentionality and alignment for a higher purpose—for her eyes are not just on the near at hand but on the future of humanity!

At Risk Group, Jayshree is driving the thought leadership on “Strategic Security Risk Intelligence”! She believes that Cyberspace, Geospace or Space (CGS) cannot be secured if NGIOA works in silo within and across its geographical boundaries. As security requires an integrated NGIOA approach with a common language, she has recently launched Cyber-Security, Geo-Security and Space- Security Risk Research Centers that will merge the boundaries of Geo-Security, Cyber-Security and Space-Security.

In 2015, Jayshree launched “Risk Roundup” an Integrated Cyber-Security, Geo-Security and Space-Security Risk Dialogue. Risk Roundup Webcast/Podcast are available on YouTube, iTunes, Google Play, Risk Group website, and professional social media.

Jayshree’s inaugural book, The Global Age: NGIOA @ Risk, was published by Springer in 2012.

About Risk Group

Risk Group is an integrated cyberspace, geospace and space (CGS) security risk research organization. Risk Group is on a mission to epitomize collective risk intelligence of nations: its government, industries, organizations and academia (NGIOA) as the synergistic intersection among independent as well as interconnected and interdependent CGS security risks to help achieve an effective process for better collective security risk intelligence, management and governance than silo and fragmented security risk approach that we have across nations today. Risk Group is determined to engage the collective NGIOA risk intelligence capability to manage CGS security risks—risks impacting individuals and entities across NGIOA. Having a collective NGIOA risk intelligence capability will be transformative for not only achieving CGS security but also global peace.

Risk Group believes that risk management, security and peace walk together hand in hand. Though security is related to management of threats and peace to the management of conflict, risk management is related to management of security vulnerabilities as well as management of conflict, and it is not possible to conceive any one of the three without the existence of the other two. All three concepts feed into each other. Risk Group believes that the security we build for ourselves is precarious and uncertain until it is secured for everyone across nations. Tradition becomes our security-so if we build a culture of managing risks effectively it will lead us to security and security will lead us to peace!
