Securing the cyber-revolution

Inaugural e-Crime and Cybersecurity Congress Scotland
Edinburgh, 13 November, 2018

 

“The scale and nature of the cyber threat is indisputably on the rise and this presents a risk to Scotland’s ambition to be a world-leading nation in cyber resilience…I want to see a common baseline of cyber resilience measures implemented across the Scottish public sector, including a commitment from boards and senior management to having appropriate governance arrangements in place to manage the cyber risks”, John Swinney, Deputy First Minister of the Scottish Government

The demand for cyber-resilience is changing the Scottish landscape. Data breaches and losses have hit three Scottish councils, and Edinburgh is in the top four UK regions when it comes to volume of cyber-attacks over the last 5 years. Last year, 11 of Scotland’s 14 health territorial boards were taken down by the global WannaCry malware, and in November, the nation’s largest bank, RBS, announced that the data of over 1.5 million of their cardholders were put at risk following a hack.

Now, both public and private sector are calling for action. Senior figures from both government and Scotland’s largest organisations have spoken out on the need for greater collaboration and higher cybersecurity standards. The Scottish Digital Office has appointed its first Chief Information Security Officer to help local authorities protect themselves against cyber-attacks, and the financial sector has announced its mission towards “a stable, safe and secure space for organisations to operate but… which allows us to make the most of the opportunities”.

Industry leaders are looking for the right strategies, solutions and partners to evolve their digital operations, while still maintaining a strong resilience infrastructure.

How do you achieve the balance between business efficiency and cybersecurity?

How do CISO’s equip themselves with the right information and resources to prepare for the cyber-revolution?

The inaugural e-Crime Congress Scotland will cover these and other key subjects for our audience of senior IT Security professionals. For over 16 years we have been building relationships with the most experienced business leaders and inviting them to share insights on how they have mitigated cyber-risk, gained board level engagement, and protected their digital assets and sensitive data. There will be real-life case studies, strategic talks and technical break-out sessions from security teams behind some of the world’s most admired brands, who know, just like you, that now is a critical time to strengthen your security infrastructure and the most effective way to do it.

  • Securing the Financial sector

    As one of the major financial hubs of the UK, Scotland’s banks need to combine digital innovation with effective cyber-resilience if they are to stay ahead.

    • How automation and user behaviour analytics can help the efforts against fraud
    • Identifying and valuing critical assets
    • Collaborating with the public sector to create a secure environment for large scale business operations
    • How to embrace fintech and digital innovation while also managing cyber-risks
  • Law enforcement held to account

    • How does law enforcement commit the same policing, and the same security to cyberspace that it does to the physical world?
    • New strategies and technologies to tackle mobile crime
  • Coping with the Cloud

    The Cloud has been identified as a major growth area, with Scottish public sector investment into cloud and hybrid service expected to increase by 50% over the next five years. But:

    • What are the security implications of the different IaaS, PaaS and SaaS possibilities?
    • What should companies look out for in Cloud contracts?
    • What about the loss of control and visibility over IT?
    • The latest in end-to-end data encryption, data masking, tokenization and redaction
  • Securing National Infrastructure

    Digital attacks have become a mainstream threat with real-world consequences. Public infrastructure, such as the National Health Service, is a vulnerable target, and governments and law enforcement are under pressure to deliver an actionable plan for cyber-resilience.

    • Maintaining continuous surveillance of industrial facilities around the world
    • IoT and CNI: what measures need to be taken to secure the increased attack surface?
  • Regulation and Resilience

    How cross-border regulation will affect the Scottish cyber-market

    • Success stories and strategies from the first 6 months of GDPR. And what comes next?
    • How to maintain levels of resilience and compliance that do not impede your end business goals
    • Implement data protection standards which cover new technological advancements
    • Information gathering to satisfy compliance
