All Wales Cyber Security Cluster Meeting - a look back at 2020
19th January 2021 | 14:00 - 16:00

For our first meeting of this New Year we are going to merge the CTF Cluster meeting with the All Wales Cyber Security Cluster meeting to run a really unusual joint session.

"That was the year that was" - those of you of a certain age will know what year Tom Lehrer was describing in his famous album but I'm sure he would agree that 2020 was a strange year for everyone. It has been a challenge for many people and a growth opportunity for others. There are some great examples of people pulling together during the year along with some heart-warming success stories in the Cyber Wales Ecosystem and indeed, Cyber Wales istelf has grown and developed in ways we could not have predicted.

We are going to have a positive and good-natured look back on 2020. We will canter through the year looking at it from the perspective of both the Oldest Cyber Cluster in Wales and the Newest Cyber Cluster in Wales and chat about the speakers, the venues and the things that were going on around us as the year progressed.

For example:-

  • British Cyber Ambassador to the USA
  • CIISEC and the doomed 6 Nations
  • NHS Call to Arms
  • Cyber in the British Armed Forces
  • HackTheBox, VulnHub & Immersive Labs
  • HARMA Virus and SMBGhost
  • GlobalWelsh
  • Germany, the Middle East and Japan
  • Launch of Cyber Coleg Cymru
  • Wrexham and Cardiff and USW CTFs
  • Digital Wales, NDEC
  • UK National Police Cyber
  • Digital Leaders
  • Cyber Innovation Showcase
  • Finding missing persons in the USA
  • Learning to pass OCSP from OWASP
  • and of course the NCSC who saved us all 100 times over and we didn't event know it!

For those of you who were at the meetings, this will be a wonderful reminder of the fun we had.

For those of you who didn't manage to get to all the meetings, this will be a chance to see all of the amazing things that have happened to the people and the organisations that make up the Cyber Wales Ecosystem in all our crazy diversity.

So, if you are wondering what to do next Tuesday afternoon that will make you smile, then feel free to join in this open and interactive homage to the year that never was at the next Cyber Wales Cluster session.
