Poor cyber security is increasingly impacting on all levels of society, nationally, locally and personally we are all at risk in one way or another. With a few strokes of a keyboard, nation states, terrorist groups, stateless organizations, and rogue individuals can launch a cyber-attack from anywhere, at any time, disrupting and damaging our democracy and way of life.
The Conference’s mission is to establish a multi-stakeholder consortium that brings together industry, government and academic interests in an effort to improve the state of cyber security on both a domestic and international level.
Attending Delegates from the public and private sectors, will bring together thought leaders from industry, government, and academia. Our audience is designed to reflect the growing challenge that cyber security poses by no longer being contained within the realm of IT. C-level executives, technology leaders, public policy makers, attorneys, the judiciary, forward thinking business owners, and end users will join us at the Conference this year.
We have secured some of the world’s leading speakers in the field of Cyber Crime, Cyber Risk and Cyber Security.
