Exclusive access to intelligence from industry-leading experts
It’s our 12th year and we are taking our event to the next level with a new location, increased networking time, more streams and bigger names than ever before. In contrast to our previous events The Future of Cyber Security Europe 2018 will be a closed-door, invite-only conference and expedition featuring 600 hand-picked senior executives from major UK firms.
The expanded conference and exhibition is aimed at board level executives and senior IT decision-makers from government and industries including critical infrastructure, healthcare, retail, and financial services. We will be making a huge announcement about the event over the coming weeks, so please do return and check the site for updates.
In just one day, the event will provide essential intelligence that enables senior personnel to stay one step ahead of cyber criminals as the attack surface expands. The conference covers today's cyber security trends and threats across Europe - as well as those of the future - equipping delegates with the tools needed to cope in an increasingly complex landscape.
The European wide event will also examine the latest cyber security strategies and technologies. It will cover personal identity as well as the UK’s departure from the EU and the implications this might have – from data protection regulation (GDPR) through to the impact Brexit will have from a malware perspective.
Industry-leading conference and seminar sessions
The Future of Cyber Security Europe 2018 is even more targeted than before, with more seminar sessions and networking opportunities across multiple vertical industries. It follows hot on the heels of iMM Group’s highly successful 2017 events.
In the morning, it will cover cyber security, looking at new technology and techniques such as artificial intelligence (AI) and analytics as well as emerging threats such as internet of things (IoT) devices.
Cyber-attacks are becoming increasingly sophisticated and expensive to deal with. According to the Ponemon Institute's 2017 annual breach survey, the average cost of a breach is £2.68 million ($3.62 million). It found that having an incident response team — either in-house, via a third party or a combination of both — can shave off $19.30 per record if a breach happens.
The event will discuss how to manage incident response, also focusing on protecting high risk businesses in Europe, such as the financial industry and those working with critical infrastructure.
The event will provide the opportunity to engage with some major industry speakers and will also feature a session from a convicted hacker turned whitehat. This presentation will demonstrate some real-life scenarios where companies handled security incidents very poorly, detailing the impact it has had on their reputations.
The Future of Cyber Security Europe 2018 gives you the opportunity to draw the latest intelligence from over 30 invaluable seminar, workshop, panel and breakout sessions featuring the leading names in the field.
Our seminar streams and interactive round tables feature CSOs and thought leaders from multiple industries, aiming to encourage delegates to participate in the discussion, in an intimate setting with their peers.
