Taking place in September, the Future of Cyber Security Virtual Conference will be a closed-door, invite-only conference featuring hand-picked senior executives from major UK firms. The Virtual Conference will be even more targeted than before, with exclusive speakers addressing urgent topics across multiple vertical industries.
The conference will feature twenty four key talks, and a live Q&A with in each speakers 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 Future of Cyber Security Virtual Conference 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, the event 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. Covering working from home risks and ransomware in the morning and topics including GDPR during COVID-19 and the threat landscape in the afternoon, the conference covers today’s cyber security trends and threats across Europe – as well as those of the future – equipping delegates with the strategies, tools and technology needed to cope in an increasingly complex landscape.
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.
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 and Virtual Conference will include sessions on the risks associated with a remote workforce and how to resolve them.
One of the greatest threats to businesses is email phishing, which sees employees targeted with malicious emails when they are working from home. The conference will address this and outline more broadly which security gaps still exist and how can these be addressed.
Ransomware is one of the biggest threats to businesses and government organisations, with an attack able to take down entire networks as malware locks valuable company data. The Future of Cyber Security Virtual Conference will look at this common attack vector during COVID-19 and outline how your business can protect itself and stop ransomware causing lasting damage.
The Future of Cyber Security Virtual Conference will examine the general threat landscape during COVID-19, including hacktivists such as the infamous Anonymous, which has made a return to the mainstream in recent times.
The Future of Cyber Security gives you the opportunity to draw the latest intelligence from invaluable seminar, workshop, panel and breakout sessions featuring the leading names in the field.
