Overview of the Conference

The IT related paraphernalia of every day commercial activity continues to grow apace and has afforded those engage in business with tools that have proved both transformative and to some degree liberating. Sadly, the criminal fraternity have been even quicker to recognise the opportunities of new technology and thus it is vitally important that we are not only vigilant about the potential dangers, but also mindful of need to appreciate that cyber security is not the sole responsibility of IT departments, but of all personnel. The emergence of entities such as The Hague Security Delta and The Malvern Cyber Security Cluster indicative that businesses are themselves seeing legitimate opportunities to meet the growing demand that will inevitably result from increased awareness of the risks concerned.

Ultimately when it comes to threats to any business it always comes down to whether an enterprise is proactive or reactive.

The International Conference on Business & Cyber Security (ICBCS) seeks to address something of the knowledge deficit that exists, as well as being a forum that brings together researchers, practitioners, policy makers and those who have the foresight to appreciate the growing importance of this area of research. Companies are increasingly aware of the need to ensure that they have a trained work force that is equipped with a range of competencies and skill sets suitable for an era of globalisation and increased competition, yet often overlook the need for cyber resilience and the 360 degree awareness of the risk required in this age of digital connectivity. Economic pressures have added to the dynamic and raise important questions with regard to policy, staffing, resources and to the prevailing ethos especially at a leadership and management level. People directly involved in the world of business recognize that the technological frontiers are changing and as a result there needs to be a willingness to embrace and adapt to change. For many these are times of dizzying change, for others the scope for new customers and partnership and stakeholder engagement affords exciting opportunities. A goodly body of evidence exists to demonstrate that a growing number of organisations have moved towards the integration of SIEM (Secure Incident and Event Management) to detect malicious activity, that said, so much more remains to be done.

ICBCS 2018 may also lay to bed a few of popular misunderstandings and misconceptions that exist about cyber security. In a positive and purposeful atmosphere there will be opportunities to ask questions, discuss specific issues as well is engage with those with differing sector experiences. The conference is a significant platform for these issues to be discussed in a constructive manner. ICBCS 2018 affords an opportunity to share insights and experiences, gain new perspectives and promote ideas to policy makers, practitioners and those committed to ensuring that the commercial world has a better understanding of cyber security.
