Event Details

We are delighted to confirm that we will be holding our second CBI Midlands Cyber Security Conference on 5 October at the Enterprise Centre, University of Derby.

This half day conference will encompass keynote speeches, workshops and panel discussions.  Designed for senior business leaders and decision-makers, The CBI will bring together expertise from a broad cross-section of the business and academic community alongside other stakeholders to examine why companies of all sizes and disciplines need a cyber-strategy, and help you get started right away.

The business environment that we are operating in has been transformed by digital technology and the ‘fourth industrial revolution’, presenting a host of opportunities across all business sectors. But with every opportunity comes a risk, and major cyber breaches are hitting the headlines more and more, becoming an increasingly high profile and often costly issue for every business, irrespective of size and sector.

Most businesses now recognise that cyber-breach is not only a major monetary risk, an IP risk and a data privacy risk; it is an issue of brand reputation and customer trust, making it a crucial issue of governance and risk management for the board. But more needs to be done to get all businesses cyber-secure.

Key themes on the agenda will be:

  • Cloud, Artificial Intelligence & the Internet of Things: Adopting new technologies in a cyber resilient manner
  • Cyber hygiene, strategy and design and how to implement this on a day to day basis
  • GDPR and the risk this can pose to your business
  • Penetration testing: How safe is your data?

Speakers will include Professor Nick Antonopoulos, Pro Vice-Chancellor, Research, University of Derby, Helena Wootton, Partner, Browne Jacobson and Tom Thackray, Director Of Innovation, CBI - plus more to be announced!
