Cybersecurity In The UK

Cybersecurity in the United Kingdom is an increasingly important issue for businesses large and small, as well as for the public and government.

The UK government released its National Cyber Security Strategy in 2016, outlining its commitment to increasing the nation's overall cybersecurity capabilities. Since then, the UK has launched a wide range of initiatives to meet this goal, including the National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC), the Cyber Security Information Sharing Partnership, and the Cyber Security Industry Partnership.

UK Cybersecurity Events

Cybersecurity events and conferences are an important part of the UK’s cybersecurity strategy.

Conferences such as the CyberUK meetup series bring together industry experts, industry stakeholders, government representatives, and cyber security researchers from across the UK to discuss the latest developments and challenges facing the cybersecurity industry in the UK.

Additionally, there are several other popular cyber events such as the Cyber Security Summit, BSides London, Black Hat, DEF CON UK - part of the official DEF CON Conference - which all focus on advancing cyber security in the UK.

This resource is updated daily and only lists security events that are in the United Kingdom, so bookmark us and visit us regularly!

UK Cybersecurity Initiatives

Other cyber security initiatives in the UK include the National Standard for Cyber Security and the Government Approved Professional Qualifications (GAPQ).

The National Standard for Cyber Security is a set of practices, processes, and technologies designed to improve the cyber security of organizations, while the GAPQ is a way for cyber security professionals to gain recognized qualifications from the UK government.

The UK is also investing heavily in training and education in the field of cybersecurity. Initiatives such as the Cyber Foundations program, Cyber Essentials, and GCHQ Certified Training (GCT) offer a range of qualifications for those looking to gain knowledge and skills in cyber security.

Furthermore, the UK government also invests in apprenticeships and other career development opportunities in the industry, allowing the UK's workforce to remain up-to-date with the current security trends.

Along with other leading Cybersecurity-focused nations, the United Kingdom (similar to the United States, Israel, and India) is taking a proactive, comprehensive approach to strengthening its cyber security landscape.

With a range of initiatives dedicated to strengthening the country's cyber security posture, such as the National Cyber Security Strategy and the Government Approved Professional Qualifications, the UK has made clear its commitment to cyber security excellence both domestically and internationally.

Cybersecurity events and conferences provide the public with accessible and engaging resources to learn more about cybersecurity, while skills development programs ensure that the UK's workforce remains well-equipped to deal with the current cyber challenges.

We hope that you use our resource and benefit from it!

SASIG of the North: Preparing People for Technology's Challenges


Technology is evolving at a dizzying pace. The emergence of AI in the popular imagination – thank you, ChatGPT! – has raised the specter of machines replacing humans to the point of our extinction, but Skynet is not here yet, nor will it be for the foreseeable future. People will always be important in the risk equation. How we address the rise of machines has become a perennial question for society. How do we improve our awareness of the increasing threats in cyberspace? How do we identify and develop the new skills emerging technology demands? And how do we change our mindset to better prepare ourselves as organizations and individuals for the worst while continuing to hope for the best? We are delighted our SASIG of the North is once again hosted by Unilever in the historic and beautiful surrounds of Port Sunlight, which exemplifies why people matter. We’re also opening this event to non-SASIG members. Our speakers and panelists will consider how we can take the initiative on skills, make ourselves more resilient, and normalize incidents to tackle them more effectively. We will look at recently adopted technologies, their insecure legacies, how we can best mitigate this, and why the fundamentals of digital hygiene remain a constant that we must aspire to achieve.

Cyber Security for Critical Assets (CS4CA) Europe 2024


The critical infrastructure that provides the most basic foundations of our society is at threat. As we continue to move our traditional technologies online, our core systems that ensure our societies remain running are at an ever-increasing risk of attack. Challenges from ransomware, insider threats, and malicious actors continue to create ever-present dangers to our systems. Additionally, with more malicious activity following Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, state-backed actors are now more determined than ever to cause threats to our IT & OT/ICS Systems. By 2025, leading analysts predict that cyber attackers will have weaponized operational technology, damaging the core of our societies and opening up new significant dangers to our way of life. To overcome these challenges, we require high-level skills, succinct processes, new technologies, and thorough awareness that maintains cyber security at the forefront of our businesses’ concerns to ensure we remain safe. Consequently, CS4CA Europe will bring together key security leaders from across Europe’s critical infrastructure, to network, learn, be inspired, and collaborate towards cyber resilience. Join us for 2 days of in-depth knowledge exchange, strategy planning, and insight building through keynote presentations, real-life case studies, panel discussions, roundtables, and networking breaks in London on 24th & 25th September 2024.
