Now in its seventh year, this year’s Cyber Threat Summit had a very European focus.
The largest event of its kind, this year attracted cyber security experts from all over Europe to discuss all aspects of cyber security including issues such as GDPR and the NIS Directive. There were three distinct streams running concurrently; “Strategic”, “Operational” and “Technical”. Delegates also saw the introduction of a Cyber Startup Zone giving innovators a chance to shine and network with potential investors.
Cyber Wales representatives, Jason Davies Founder & Chair of the North Wales Cyber Security Cluster and John Davies Co-founder and Chair of the South Wales Cyber Security Cluster, attended the event to fly the flag for Cyber Wales.
John was a main stage speaker at the event as a Country Representative for Wales.
Representatives from each European Member State were invited to present on the state of cyber security in their countries, current cyber threats and examples of innovations in cyber security emerging from their cyber communities. John described the flourishing ecosystem in Wales, shared the recent announcement about the launch of GlobalEpic and assured delegates that Wales was open to collaboration and partnerships across Europe and beyond regardless of BRexit.
