Exclusive access to intelligence from industry-leading experts
Taking place in October, the Future of Cyber Security Virtual Conference will be an invite-only virtual conference featuring hand-picked senior executives from major UK firms. The conference will be even more targeted than before, with exclusive speakers addressing urgent topics across multiple vertical industries.
The Future of Cyber Security Virtual Conference will feature eight key talks, and a live Q&A with speakers at the end of each session.
It will also be possible to engage in the networking time delegates usually enjoy at a physical conference through post-event virtual drinks, and live prize draws.
The event is aimed at board level executives and senior IT decision-makers from government and industries including critical infrastructure, retail, healthcare and financial services.
In just one day, Future of Cyber Security Virtual Conference will provide essential intelligence that enables senior personnel to stay one step ahead of cyber criminals as the attack surface expands during COVID-19. The conference covers today’s cyber security trends and threats across Europe – as well as those of the future – equipping delegates with the tools needed to cope in an increasingly complex landscape.
The event will also examine the latest cyber security strategies and technologies. It will cover password and video conferencing security and the threat posed by nation states, as well and advice on how to avoid phishing attacks as more employees work remotely during COVID-19.
Industry-leading conference and seminar sessions
The Future of Cyber Security Virtual Conference is even more targeted than before, with more seminar sessions and networking opportunities across multiple vertical industries. It follows hot on the heels of Cyber News Group’s highly successful 2019 and 2020 events.
In the morning, it will cover business security during COVID-19 and video conferencing. Meanwhile, delegates will learn about hot topics such as password security, social engineering and the threat landscape in the afternoon.
The cost of a breach can be huge, often reaching millions of pounds. According to Accenture and the Ponemon Institute, the average cost of a cyber-attack is $13 million.
The Annual Cost of Cybercrime study found that criminals are adapting their attack methods by targeting the human layer — the weakest link in cyber defence — through increased ransomware with phishing and social engineering attacks as a path to entry.
This is especially relevant in today’s climate, which has never been riskier for businesses as the work from home ethos opens new avenues for attack. With this in mind, the Future of Cyber Security Virtual Conference will include sessions on the risks associated with a remote workforce and how to resolve them.
Many companies hire professional social engineers to try and infiltrate their business as a type of “penetration test.” With this in mind, an afternoon session will introduce a professional social engineer who will share their tips and tricks to entice employees into giving up their data or give access to buildings or systems. The talk will offer some practical tips for businesses to help ensure their employees know what to look out for.
The Future of Cyber Security Virtual Conference gives you the opportunity to draw the latest intelligence from over 30 invaluable seminar, workshop, panel and breakout sessions featuring the leading names in the field.
