Resilience & Cyber4Good

Wednesday 20 September to Friday 22 September

Time: 11:00-12:30 via Teams Live

Cyber attacks are one of our greatest threats in the public sector and are an ever present reality – how can we truly keep one step ahead or anticipate the next direction of attack? 

Resilience is the name of the game, so join this virtual conference us to share and learn how we can work together to keep vital public services running - come what may. It will bring together public sector leaders to share examples of what can be achieved with the opportunity for discussion and Q&A sessions too. 

2023's agenda is currently under construction - for information about speaker and partner opportunities, contact [email protected]
