UK CyberSecurity Summit 2018

Tuesday 6th November 2018 – IET, Savoy Place London

Monsters under the bed!

The UK’s leading cybersecurity influencers will assemble for SecureData’s annual UK CyberSecurity Summit in London on Tuesday 6 November.

SecureData’s elite consulting team will provide insight on the key findings of our recent SensePost study, compiled by two research units that analyse millions of customer security logs per day.

During his keynote, Charles van der Walt, our Chief Security Strategy Officer, will examine the difference between the ‘security as risk’ and the ‘security as debt’ paradigms and explain how changing paradigms may change the way we think about, talk about and measure software security. “We believe this could have a very empowering effect on development managers and other security professionals who are struggling to articulate the relative benefits of security (or a lack of security) to a software product.

Our CTO & Founder Etienne Greeff will later take over the stage and provide an overview of how state-of-the-art AI and machine learning methodologies can be applied in both offensive and defensive applications.

Our guest speaker on the day will be Duncan Brown, IDC’s associate vice president for European Infrastructure and Security Practice, who will provide a high-level view of the latest trends in managed services and integrated technologies.

Sensepost, SecureData’s elite consulting arm will unveil truths about commonly accepted cybersecurity myths by providing insight on the key findings of recent studies, compiled by two research units that analyse millions of customer security logs per day.

Book your place to discover the latest threats and vulnerabilities facing UK businesses amid an ever-evolving security landscape.
