Cyber Security Conference 2018

The East Midlands Cyber Conference brings together digital specialists, businesses and policy makers to discuss the practical ways in which businesses can be more resilient to digital crime, thereby removing barriers to growth and creating an environment in which they, and the region as a whole, can flourish.

The Conference theme this year is "Digital Risk" where delegates will be encouraged to take a 360 degree look at their business, identify the areas in which they use IT and data, and help them to determine their Digital Risk Appetite.

By examining the consequences of a fraud, breach or data loss in various business functions, delegates will be better enabled to assess the risks in these key areas and consider what action they may need to take to reduce or offset risk, just as they would for other risks to their business (eg. regulatory, fire, flood risk etc).

Through a series of workshops, panel discussions, exhibitions and guest speakers, attendees will be provided with practical guidance to help steer their thinking on cyber security from both a technical standpoint, as well as the necessary processes and governance to underpin it.
