Public Sector Cyber Forum 2018 - 20 September 2018

Thursday 20 September 2018

15 Hatfields, Waterloo, London, SE1 8DJ

New cyber challenges for the public sector

 

*** This event is free to the public sector and accredited for 5 hours CPD training *** 

Advances in the internet of things, big data and artificial intelligence are creating immense potential for better public services; but it comes with new risks, especially with the growing array of internet connected devices and new sources of data. Cyber attackers can find new weak points and vulnerabilities, posing a serious threat to the data integrity and operational capabilities of public authorities.

As organisations adopt the new technologies they will face new challenges in cyber security. This will be the focus of UKAuthority’s conference, to take place in London on 20 September 2018, asking questions about what new threats will emerge from the IoT, big data and AI, and exploring the strategies for providing protection and long term resilience.

This is a crucial area that will affect the future of every public sector organisation, and the event will provide a valuable opportunity to learn, discuss the issues and begin to develop your own strategy.
