The content of this cyber security conference is relevant to organisations across all industry sectors and is designed to meet the needs of those who have responsibility for managing IT Operations, Cyber Security, Governance, Compliance or Risk Management.
The Agenda of Security First Events
With the huge variation of incident types an organisation can be susceptible to including cloud, email, insiders, ransomware, and malware, it’s no surprise that protecting yourself against an incident remains a challenge for many. The agenda of Security First aims at providing an educational forum that focuses on key challenges faced by cyber security professionals like you through open discussions, technical workshops, demo labs and thought leadership sessions while encouraging audience questions throughout.
The Security First 2022 agenda is evolving daily with confirmed speakers covering topics from security spend, bespoke sustainable cyber security frameworks, to threat detection and response and Zero Trust in today’s hybrid world.
Here’s a sneak peek of who to expect on the day:
- Sir Alex Younger, Former MI6 Chief
Why "Intelligence" Is Fundamental To Cyber Security
- Richard Ford, CTO
Security in a Hybrid World
- Matt Thomlinson, UK Director
Embedding a Security-First Approach
- Brian Martin, Head of Product Management, Strategy & Innovation
Cyber Economics - Maximising Return on Security Budgets
- Vaibhav Malik, Head of Cyber Security Advisory Practice
Exploiting & Exploring Cyber Security Frameworks For Optimised Value
- Nick Brownrigg, Head of Solution Architecture
Demystifying Detection & Response – Making The Right Choices To Defend Your Threat Landscape
A full agenda will be released in April with more expert speakers from across the industry still to be added including live CISO case study interviews and a broad range of panel discussions.
We’ll also have a variety of high-profile cyber security vendors hosting presentations and demo labs to give you a bigger picture of what’s possible and what’s not yet discovered. Watch out for our sponsor announcement shortly.
The keynote of the day is our guest and former Chief (“C”) of the Secret Intelligence Service, Sir Alex Younger. Having served as the longest-serving MI6 Chief in 50 years until recently, Sir Alex Younger spent much of his career as a Spy and worked abroad undercover as a diplomat in several countries before becoming the head of counter-intelligence. In his role, he oversaw the transformation of his service to make it fit for the data age. He saw that in a time of dynamic change, static defences are not enough. The ability to see your organisation as an attacker would see it, and to adapt to change is fundamental to defence. In his keynote, Sir Alex Younger will share with us his learnt lessons and is available to answer your questions and challenges your organisations may have.
