About this Conference

Recent high profile attacks have shown that we have a long way to go in developing a secure cyber network, and that training for all staff is vital to mitigate the ongoing threat.

At this conference you will hear from some of the leading experts in the field of data security, to deliver real practical insights on issues such as what steps to take when your Cyber threat is raised, how to mitigate malware attacks, methods to protect your business, how the threat of Russia could impact you, and much more.

Possibly more than ever, the value of attending this event, and being better prepared to deal with, or better still, prevent an attack, loss of data, data breaches and more, could save you considerably in the event an attack should occur.

Our online conferences have had fantastic feedback, they are much more interactive, more time for Q&A and lots of sharing of information with delegates and speakers in the chat function.
