DAY 1 - Cyber Defenders

The current pandemic presents organisations with an entirely new and unfamiliar set of risks to manage. As the COVID-19 crisis stretches into months, the resilience of new security tools, new ways of working, and employees themselves is constantly tested. Sessions will cover topics on how to mitigate ever-growing insider threats with the necessary knowledge, awareness and risk background to react appropriately.

10:00 – 10:45 (BST)

Speaker: Mikko Hypponen, Researcher, 

Technology shapes the world. The more successful a new technology becomes, the more reliant we will become of it. This has always happened and will happen in the future too. In many ways, internet is the best and worst innovation done during our lifetime. We were all given a free and open internet, but what kind of an internet will we be leaving behind? Our global networks are being threatened by surveillance and crime. How did we get here? And where will we go next?

11:30 – 12:00 (BST)

Dr. Kevin Jones will share practical actionable insight to help you think differently and identify ways for security to work with an organisation’s people in order to raise cybersecurity awareness at a global scale. During this session, you will learn how to empower your people with the right tools and approach, so that employees can be the strongest link in an organisation’s cyber-defence.

13:30 – 14:15 (BST)

The current pandemic presents organisations with an entirely new and unfamiliar set of risks to manage. As the COVID-19 crisis stretches into months, the resilience of new security tools, new ways of working, and employees themselves is constantly tested.

Employees are the first line of defense against cyber security attacks. As a security leader, the strength of your security awareness program depends on your ability to give your colleagues the knowledge, skills, and confidence to recognize phishing attacks, be aware of CEO fraud, and understand how easy it is to be tricked by social engineering. This discussion will help you build a cyber-secure mindset to help keep your organization aware, secure, and protected. 

DAY 2 - Cyber Innovators

Digital transformation and new, nimble working practices are changing the security landscape. The 24/7 connected user is demanding flexible, agile systems and processes. Information security professionals need to be constantly looking ahead to prepare for the next threat or major technological development. Day 2 programme will address the challenges of building strong cybersecurity strategies and tactics to protect an organisation’s critical information assets.

10:00 – 10:45 (BST)
Senior Representative, NCSC

The COVID-19 pandemic has led to an increase in cyber-attacks on businesses and consumers, making the National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC)’s role more important than ever. As organisations undertake unprecedented structural changes, digital transformation and connectivity, the digital security perimeter is evolving rapidly. This talk will discuss the key threats and issues the NCSC has encountered as it seeks to makes the UK safe online. 

11:30 – 12:00 (BST)

DAY 3 - Cyber Community

In light of the ever growing cybersecurity skills gap, and an exploding attack surface, infosecurity leaders are now shifting their focus. Solving the skills gap crisis requires a different way of thinking, for organisations and talent. On Day 3, learn how to cultivate a security mindset, encourage apprenticeship programs, and embrace diversity in all its forms to find, nurture and train professionals. Our community needs to work together to share knowledge, learn from each other to get ahead of cyber-criminals.

10:00 – 10:45 (BST)
Wendy Nather, Head of Advisory CISOs, Cisco and Hall of Fame alummna, Infosecurity Group

The so-called cybersecurity skills shortage is all a matter of perspective. As technology gets democratised, so does security; the skills we need come from all walks of life. It’s time to broaden our definitions of what it means to be “technical,” who is “in security” and who isn’t, and who is already doing the work unrecognized. It’s not a pipeline problem, it’s a vision problem. Let’s take the blinders off.

11:30 – 12:00 (BST)
Speaker: Naina Bhattacharya, CISO, Danone

Reporting suggests the information security sector continues to suffer from a shortage of skilled professionals, with nearly 3 million unfilled roles globally and 150,000 in EMEA alone. Skilled resources, diverse workforce together with a safe and healthy working environment remain key to securing organisations against a dynamic and diverse cyber threat. During this presentation, you will learn how team culture can help us build, develop, and retain talent & the responsibility of security leaders in shaping it.
