CYBERUK is the UK government’s flagship cyber security event. Hosted by the National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC), it features world-class speakers, solutions and opportunities for interaction between the public and private sectors.
CYBERUK is the authoritative event for the UK’s cyber security community. It demonstrates what businesses, government, law enforcement and academia can do together as teams and as organisations to deliver a digital Britain that leads the world in cyber resilience.
As in previous years, Welsh Government had a stand at the event and Neil Sandford was showcasing the Cyber Wales Ecosystem with the help of a number of members of the Welsh Cyber Clusters.
Cyber Wales representatives Clare Johnson, Head of Cyber Security for the Faculty of Computing Engineering & Science at the University of South Wales and Pete Burnap, Professor of Data Science & Cybersecurity at Cardiff University School of Computer Science along with John Davies, Co-founder & Chair of the South Wales Cyber Security Cluster who wer on-hand to answer questions about Welsh cyber capability.
This year, delegates were offered seven content-rich Streams, encouraging active audience participation in the key areas of Collaborating Securely, AI, Countering the Adversary, Resilience and Resisting Attack, Safety and Cyber Security, Growing Cyber and a Stream of Interactive Workshops.
Cyber Wales also demonstrated proactive support for the MoD Army 2020 Strategy and in particular the strategy to develop tactical Cyber Protection Teams in the Army Reserve. South Wales Cyber Security Cluster Member Mark Howells, himself a Reservist with 53 Signal Squadron of the Royal Corps of Signals and a Cyber Troop Commander was given permission to man the stand in uniform to raise the profile of this important national initiative.
