The Cyber Security Conference 2016 has been launched, 25 February, by the Telegraph Business Events. It will take place on 25 May, at the Grange Hotel, London.
The inaugural conference has been developed in response to the significant and growing threat of cyber attacks, said the management team. Leading speakers will focus on methods that board members and CEOs should take to minimise cyber security threats in their business.
Keynote speaker, Mike Lynch OBE, founder of Autonomy will discuss how businesses can get ahead of the cyber security threat, make the UK the safest place in the world for digital activity, and upskill our workforce.
Topics to be discussed, include:
– Developing a preparation checklist for the CEO
– Identifying the significance of internal threats; external hacking and malicious intent is only part of the picture
– Ensuring employees prioritise cyber security in their day-to-day working practices
– PR Masterclass: A step-by-step multimedia enactment plan to implement
David Livingstone, Associate Fellow Chatham House, Cyber Security adviser, said: “This important conference sets out to equip the modern boardroom with the knowledge needed to protect the interests of organisation and its people through that single discriminating factor: leadership.”
Dave Palmer, director of Technology at Darktrace, said: “The threat landscape is getting increasingly tougher as cyber attackers become more sophisticated and targeted. A new approach is needed that can help organisations stay ahead of the risk, and this conference will be a good showcase for the alternatives.”
