The emergence of new technologies such as AI has enhanced the sophistication of cyber attacks enabling threats to be more adaptive, targeted, and difficult to detect. Cybercriminals can analyse vast amounts of data to identify vulnerabilities, automate attack processes, and even mimic human behaviour to evade traditional security measures. As these technologies become more accessible the risk of data breaches and cyber attacks to organisations increases. All businesses are under threat and the question is not if but when.

Are you prepared in the event of a breach? How quickly can you respond to a cyber security crisis?

This event will give you an insight into the world of cyber crime and how businesses must adapt to deal with the latest threats. From AI risks to cyber compliance you’ll see a host of expert presentations from security leaders, which are sure to prompt a re-examination of your security strategy.

We’ll also be running a keynote session with Jason Fox, one of the original presenters and directing staff on SAS: Who Dares Wins, about his time in the Royal Marines and Special Forces.
