Cyber Threat conference

This year’s Security & Counter Terror Expo, running on May 3 and 4, Wednesday and Thursday, at Olympia London – will feature the Cyber Threat Intelligence conference. The organisers of SCTX say they’re providing security professionals with a platform to discuss the evolving threat.

The two-day programme begins with ‘The ENISA Threat Landscape 2017’, an analysis of the top cyber threats and emerging trends this year, presented by Dr Louis Marinos, NIS R&A expert. Paul Thorlby, CTO at defence and cyber product firm Qinetiq, will identify ways the industry can close the cyber skills gap and develop a pathway for the next generation.

Talal Rajab, techUK’s Head of Programme, Cyber, National Security, said: “The cyber terrorism threat grows immeasurably year-on-year and we as an industry, must grow, adapt and react in equal measure. Security & Counter Terror Expo provides the opportunity to learn from and meet with some of the key figures in the sector addressing the most important issues we face today.”

Sharing of information between governments and industry and the implementation of GDPR post-Brexit will all be discussed by John Godwin of UK Cloud.

After the opening of GCHQ’s new National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC) last October, on day one of the Security & Counter Terror Expo, the NCSC Chief Executive, Ciaran Martin, will provide a keynote address on the current and future threat in cyber space and how prepared the UK is.

Cogia, iStorage and Dataminr are among the tech companies to already confirm their presence at the 2017 show.

David Thompson, Security and Counter Terror Expo Event Director, added: “It’s now more important than ever for the security industry to unite, share best practice and work together against the ever-changing threat posed by terrorists. We are pleased to be able to facilitate this and provide a platform for 360-degree learning and development.”

Peter Wood, CEO, First Base Technologies; Nader Heinen, Regional Director, Advanced Security Assurance Advisory, BlackBerry; Ron Gregory, Estates & Facilities Compliance Manager, Northern Lincolnshire and Goole NHS Foundation Trust; and Jenny Radcliffe aka ‘The People Hacker’ are industry names confirmed to speak at the event.

Technology will be showcased. The Expo is co-located with Forensics Europe Expo and Ambition – the EPRR Expo. To register to attend or exhibit at the 2017 Expo, visit
