UK Cyber Forum Update – 28 July 2019


Good afternoon

Here are some opportunities you may be interested in

Kent Cyber Security Forum 2019

Thursday 5 September 2019, 10.00 – 17.00, University of Kent

A survey by security firm Kaspersky Lab found that many SMEs (Small and Medium-sized Enterprises) don’t believe they are at risk. The same report last year found over a third of SMEs fell victim to a cyber-attack, costing on average £75k – £311k. The government is urging organisations in the UK to take cyber security more seriously.

The University of Kent has brought together the expertise in one place, on one day, to help organisations prepare for, prevent and deal with cyber security threats. Please join us for the Kent Cyber Security Forum this September.

Malvern Festival of Innovation

10th October  in Malvern

This year the day-long Cyber Security event as part of the Festival of Innovation will focus on Cyber Security Solutions for SMEs.  It is free for innovative SMEs to exhibit at the event and this is allocated on a first come first served basis.

The event is open to the public and attracts attendees from across the UK. It includes companies of all sizes, members of the public, university students, managed service providers, members of both central and regional government and police. We usually have between 300 and 400 attendees.

The programme of speakers will be published later in the year.

There is also a popular black tie dinner for the Festival on the evening of 10th October.  Dinner tickets are £69 each (including vat).
