"Cyber-enabled crime is a rapidly emerging and ever-evolving threat"

                          Dr Cliffe Schreuders, Director of Cybercrime & Security Innovation Centre, Leeds Beckett University

 

The hot topic of cyber security is explored with an expert panel of speakers at the Leeds Beckett University Cyber Security Networking Event on Thursday 6th July.

Along with the opportunities that the digital age has brought us, are vulnerabilities which cyber security aims to address.

The event will explore the benefits of greater 'cyber resilience', expanding on the challenges related to defending legacy systems, and what strategies smaller companies can adopt to protect themselves.

 


 

Introduction by Professor Colin Pattinson

Dean of School, School of Computing, Creative Technologies & Engineering

Member of the Europol Internet Security Advisory Board and the aql® appointed Regional Ambassador for Cyber Security Information Sharing Partnership (CiSP)

        

Stuart Hyde

CiSP is a joint industry and government initiative set up to exchange cyber threat information in real time, in a secure, confidential and dynamic environment, increasing situational awareness and reducing the impact on UK business. It came into its own during the recent Health UIT crisis when NHS network managers were able to share data and thinking quickly across the sector and with Government agencies.

CiSP is free and is managed, run and financed by Government.

 

This networking event will also give attendees the opportunity to discuss where recent technological advances are taking us, while browsing a showcase of cyber security technology projects exhibited by representatives from Leeds Beckett University.

This event is free to attend. Breakfast pastries and refreshments will be served.
