Cybersecurity Summit 2018
February 13 @ 5:30 am - 9:00 pm
According to the PwC Global State of Information Security Survey 2018, the business impact of cyber-attacks is increasing. At the same time, more than a quarter of companies (28%) do not know how many breaches they have had.
How can your cyber security strategy be best utilised to anticipate threats, save costs, reduce risk and deliver peace of mind?
In an increasingly interconnected world we as consumers are becoming more susceptible to cyber attacks, so security should be at the heart of everything we build and and do online. ‘In this day and age, especially with GDPR in force, data breaches can be catastrophic for brands. We’re seeing more businesses targeted; look at BA who had a hacker swipe the details of 380,000 customers over a 16-day period. Curry’s Digital has also been hit this year, Superdrug too. A breach can happen to anyone and that’s why it’s so important that we raise awareness through events. Cited UKFast and Secarma CEO Lawrence Jones MBE. Understanding how to deal with a threat before it happens is crucial to business reputation and longevity.
We are excited to launch our first ever Cyber Security event here in Yorkshire. We want to shine the spotlight on individuals and tech businesses that are innovators of Cyber tech in the region. This event is aimed at those who are actively engaged in cyber security and cybercrime sectors, senior business leaders for whom cyber security is a business-critical issue and everyone in-between, to network and openly discuss new tech within this sector. We will be looking at upcoming trends within Cybersecurity that will determine whether your organisation is prepared for Ransomware attacks and even methods utilised commonly by criminals that are AI related.
Some topics for discussion include:
- The latest thinking and predictions for the future
- Cyber security strategies that are proactive as opposed to reactive.
- Areas of vulnerability and new opportunities the cybercriminal uses for exploitation.
- Ways to improve your overall cyber resilience both externally and internally.
The perfect time to be involved is now.
