  • South Wales Cyber Security Cluster Meeting

    South Wales Cyber Security Cluster Meeting

    14:00 -16:00
    February 19, 2019

    Our February meeting will be hosted in the brand new Computational Foundry building at the stunning Bay Campus of Swansea University on Fabian Way.

    The Computational Foundry is a new £32.5 million world-class facility, which comprises the staff of Swansea University’s Computer Science and Mathematics departments as its core team. It is intended to be a place where industry partners can work with the University to test new ideas, where people from all disciplines can link up, and where the digital innovators of tomorrow will be completing their studies. Cyber security (‘Securing Life’), health technologies (‘Sustaining Life’) and the increasing pervasiveness of digital in everyday life (‘Enhancing Life’) will be the three core themes initially, but the Foundry will adopt a flexible approach, responding to industry needs and emerging research priorities across computational science.

    In addition to being among the first people to see inside this new facility, we will be given and overview of the Computational Foundry from the head of Department, a talk on cyber security at Swansea University by Dr Phillip James, Senior Lecturer at the Dept. of Computer Science and a talk on the research being carried out.

    We will also hear about an amazing opportunity for Cluster members to participate in a Sandpit Event being organised by the Cherish-DE Team at the University around Easter time this year where individuals and companies can present innovations to a panel of investors and researchers. Markus Roggenbach from the Team will be on hand to answer questions and clarify the possibility of investment.

    Also, the SANS Institute, the biggest provider of Cyber Training in the world, have their EMEA HQ in Swansea and their Managing Director Stephen Jones will be coming along to provide an overview of the huge range of training resources available, explain their close relationship with Wales and answer questions about their Global operations.

    See you all there!

  • North Wales Cyber Security Cluster meeting February 2019

    North Wales Cyber Security Cluster meeting February 2019

    14:00 -16:00
    February 21, 2019

    WOW… what a great start to 2019 at our January meeting in Wrexham.  Attendance was fantastic as were all of our speakers and engagement with the session was very high.

    Continuing on from this, we are heading over to St Asaph this month to visit our friends at the North Wales Police Cyber Crime Team.  We have some great speakers lined up for you and are looking forward as always to catching up with everybody and enjoying a cup of tea and some biscuits…

    Firstly we will be hearing from Les Pritchard, Neterix.  Les works with a wide range of companies and charities, helping them to secure their networks, data and improve staff awareness. With a background in both technical security and information security, he helps organisations implement security solutions and achieve compliance.

    The way organisations use technology has changed considerably over recent years with the adoption of cloud services. Whilst this shift has brought many benefits, it also introduces new risks that traditional security models struggle to prevent. This talk will discuss some of the most common risks using real case studies of companies who have been caught out. Les will also provide some live demos to help illustrate how data can be put at risk. The talk will conclude with a look at some of the steps that can be taken to help manage these risks and secure your data.

    In addition, we will also be recieving an update from Peter Jarvis, Detective Sergeant at the North Wales Police Cyber Crime Team, about what h eand his team have been doing over the last few months including the joint work they are doing with TITAN (North West Regional Organised Crime Unit) and will also have the opportunity to ask any questions you may have for the team in an open Q&A session
