Background: Following the launch of the UK Government National Cyber Security Strategy 2016 - 2021; DCLG in association with the National Cyber Security Programme and with support from iNetwork is hosting a Local Civic Cyber Summit. The Local Civic Cyber Summit which, is being held in the Guildhall in London, is aimed at senior leaders in Local Authorities, Local Resilience Forums and Local Enterprise Partnerships with strategic responsibility for cyber resilience in their localities.
London's Guildhall was built between 1411 and 1440 and designed to reflect the importance of the City's ruling elite. In the twenty-first century this grade I listed landmark building and national treasure still retains its awe-inspiring architecture reflecting the 800 year old history of the City of London.
Designed by Sir Horace Jones, the Grade II listed Livery Hall built between 1870 and 1873 is one of the spectacular rooms within the Guildhall. This historic room, within a building that resonates with the long resilience of the City of London, is an ideal place to discuss Local Civic Cyber Resilience.
The free to attend Local Civic Cyber Summit will provide delegates with a strategic overview of:
- The National Cyber Security Strategy (NCSS)
- How the new National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC) will engage with and support local cyber resilience
- How cyber resilience links to wider agendas including digital transformation, local devolution, local economic regeneration and cyber related crime.
Keynote speakers will develop a strategic overview on what local leaders, policy makers and practitioners need to know to develop a cyber aware culture in their organisations. By looking at national initiatives from a local context delegates will better understand the need for cyber resilience in their localities and why cyber resilience is not an IT issue but something that has to be part of the DNA of all organisations.
Speakers at the Local Civic Cyber Summit include:
- Liam Maxwell: National Technology Adviser at the Department for Culture, Media & Sport; Cyber as an Enabler & Why Cyber Resilience Matters
- Campbell McCafferty: Director, Cyber and Government Security Directorate, Cabinet Office; The National Cyber Security Strategy (Note: Title TBC)
