“Cybersecurity –What’s Real, What’s Not and What’s Next?”

Club house on Whitehall

Over the past decade or so we have become increasingly dependent on technology in our daily lives; this has opened us up to a much foreseen and somewhat dystopian threat – that of ‘cybersecurity’.

While in the late 1990s and early 2000s cybersecurity only seemed an issue for your company’s IT team, today it’s a £multi-billion global industry that is expected to top £1 trillion by 2022.

Whether it’s an email scam targeted at individuals, a corporate data theft affecting millions of people at one time or a DDoS attack, the rise in cyberattacks and their increasing reach has made cybersecurity a focus of everyone’s attention to the point where we’re no longer so worried about someone stealing our wallet but stealing our entire digitised life.

Every day one hears of moral panics in business and outrage in society about ‘cybersecurity’. This talk will describe in outline what the real issues are – and why they’re real – and address some of the persistent myths around the subject.

Our Speaker will speculate on likely developments in the field – in terms of emergent technologies and their accompanying risks – and on the likely evolution of organisations, from commercial enterprises to national governments and individual consumers, as they move to mitigate these new risks.

BOOK HERE to hear our speaker –  Henrik Kiertzner - give examples of cybersecurity developments, realities, truths and myths and shed some light on the evolution, challenges and solutions that will arise.

Expect some fairly explicit plagiarism, an element of hand-waving, possibly more social science than is strictly desirable and perhaps one or two good jokes.

About our Speaker: Henrik Kiertzner

Henrik Kiertzner served in the British Army worldwide for many years, as a linguist and intelligence specialist.

Since leaving the Army in 2000, he has been, variously, IT Director of an international engineering consultancy, a security and risk consultant in both real-world and cyber domains and now makes a living discussing and delivering analytics and big data solutions to cybersecurity challenges throughout EMEA.

Among his proudest achievements are co-authorship of the security strategy for the London Olympic Park, authorship of a national border security strategy for the last-but-two government of a now failed state and the specification and delivery of a security architecture supporting a NATO nation’s newly-deployed battlefield management system.

Henrik prides himself on using his linguistic skills to interpret between suit and t-shirt. He is a Fellow of the British Computer Society, a Chartered Information Technology Professional, a Member of the Institution of Engineering and Technology and holds a valid Cycling Proficiency Certificate.
