THIS EVENT IS CPD CERTIFIED
This seminar will be a timely opportunity to discuss the policy priorities for cyber security in the UK - including key issues around preparedness, international cooperation and how the response is organised.
Two years into the National Cyber Security Strategy, delegates will discuss latest developments and next steps to meet the increased threat facing organisations and individuals.
Further sessions will assess the work of the National Cyber Security Centre, as well as discussing key measures from the Secure by Design review - which outlines plans to build security into the design of internet connected devices.
Overall, areas for discussion include:
- The threat to the UK - assessing its scale, priorities for raising awareness and how policy and business practice might best respond;
- Preparedness and resilience - ensuring that public and private organisations are better placed to defend against cyber-attacks;
- Addressing skills gaps - what should be the way forward for encouraging more people into careers in cyber security and developing the necessary curricula in the education system;
- Funding and innovation - what are the priorities for investment and resource allocation, and what more might be done to ensure the security of ‘smart’ internet connecteddevices;
- International collaboration - latest on the impact of the UK leaving the EU and the rise in state sponsored cyber-crime, and how UK-international co-operation and intelligence-sharing on cyber security might be further developed; and
- Standards and accreditation - examining the take-up and reputation of certification programmes, such as Cyber Essentials, and the potential for wider adoption - as well as discussion on standards development.
