Cyber Security Summit

October 19, 2023

The theme of the Cyber Security Summit is Securing your organisation’s critical assets.

The event follows on from the success of last year’s Cyber Security Summit which had 376 delegates and our CIO Summit earlier this year which had 450 delegates.

As cyber criminals become increasingly sophisticated, security leaders continue to innovate and leverage solutions such as automation to meet and exceed the complexity of the attacks from bad actors. But as we know, no organisation is completely secure and it is a matter of when and not if for many. It is crucial that response strategy is as robust as defence and that investment in these areas are scaled as such.

The Cyber Security Summit 2023 will bring together thought leaders from across government, industry and academia to discuss cyber strategy and how to secure your organisation’s critical assets in an evolving cyber threat landscape where no organisation or individual is immune from attack particularly in these turbulent geo-political times. Equipping yourself and your business with the correct cybersecurity knowledge and tools has never been more important.

New streams of content to the 2023 agenda focusing on areas that have been identified as critical to securing your organisation’s critical assets:

· IT security: strengthening the systems that store and transmit your digital information

· Cybersecurity in practice: protecting your electronic information stored within those systems

· Cybersecurity policy and regulation: understanding the risks to your data

There will be case studies from companies across utilities, transport, finance, health, aviation, education, manufacturing, pharma and medical on tackling cyber challenges, how they have responded to attacks and importantly, how they recovered with confidence. What lessons were learnt that can be shared with others in our response to cybercriminals? Hear how you can safeguard your operation to deliver business value, advance your leadership skills and develop a security strategy to bolster your resilience in uncertain times. 

The Summit will act as a platform for leaders to share the latest insights, best practices and global trends covering themes including defending our national infrastructure, lessons learnt from recent attacks, emerging threats and how collaboration and knowledge sharing between government and industry is crucial in preventing cybercrime and identifying threats. 

Attendees will hear from leading technology providers on the latest innovations to reduce your exposure and implement a prevent first strategy in your company. Expert speakers will outline how to build a skilled cyber security workforce, foster a pipeline of cyber talent and how to attract a more diverse and inclusive workforce to bolster your company’s resilience to attacks.
