July 7th 2020 | Central London



The cyber threats that we face are not only ever-evolving, they are becoming evermore complex and sophisticated with each passing year, affecting a widening number of organisations and individuals. Over the last two year’s alone, the NCSC has reported that the UK faced 1,100 attacks, an average of 10 attacks per week.

The 6th Annual Cyber Security Summit welcomed cyber security and ICT professionals from across central government, local government, law enforcement, the NHS and wider public sector, to tackle key issues at the heart of UK public sector. Delegates discovered, determined and deliberated the latest developments, strategies and technologies available to successfully defend their organisations online.

The 6th Annual Cyber Security Summit took place on the 9th July in Central London. This event is free-to-attend for the public sector.
