8.30 – 9.15 am          Registration and breakfast

9.15 – 9.30 am          Welcome – Amanda Johnson, DSM Group

9.30 – 10.00 am        Cyber Security- The basics. Joseph Cooksey Digital Engagement manager, Barclays.

Covering current threats such as social engineering, impersonation fraud and password strength and steps that you can take to mitigate business risk.

10.00 – 10.30 am      GDPR without the jargon! Mark Povey, Jack Simons.

This new regulation comes into force on the 25th May 2018. All businesses should have a plan for their GDPR journey. But please remember the first statement we give to all organisations is “don’t panic” – you can’t do nothing but we’ll help you work through the jargon to become compliant.

10.30– 11.00 am       Coffee and networking

11.00 – 11.30 am       Real-time Threat Detection and Response – WatchGuard.

Hackers are designing malware to be more sophisticated than ever. Through packing, encryption, and polymorphism, cyber criminals are able to disguise their attacks to avoid detection. Zero day threats and advanced malware easily slip by antivirus solutions that are simply too slow to respond to the constant stream of emerging threats. Organisations of all sizes need a solution that leverages a holistic approach to security from the network to the endpoint. WatchGuard Threat Detection and Response (TDR) is a powerful collection of advanced malware defense tools that correlate threat indicators from Fireboxes and Host Sensors to block known, unknown and evasive malware threats.

11.30 – 12.00 am       Cyber Security in an ever changing world – Kaspersky.
When a breach occurs, every second counts – and costs. But few companies have a handle on the ROI for their cyber security efforts. How can you find the value? What if weighing up the different payoffs could help your organization focus on the cyber security solutions that best fit – and, in the process, derive the best possible bang for their buck?

12:00 am – 12:30 pm  Question Time

Due to popular demand this slot will be taken up with a range of Cyber Security questions put to the speakers with discussion opened up to the floor for all delegates to contribute.

12:30 pm onwards     Buffet lunch, Facility tour, supplier exhibition, networking
