Conference Description (submitted by organizer)
In March 2018 the Northern Ireland Assembly’s email system was hit by a cyber-attack, while in 2017 Ciaran Martin, CEO, National Cyber Security Centre revealed that Northern Ireland had been hit by “significant” online attacks from hostile nations.
From accusations of state-backed hacking to the unprecedented global disruption caused by the WannaCry ransomware attack, cyber-threats are accelerating in frequency and complexity.
It is no longer possible for cyber-security policies to be purely reactive and it is essential all organisations’ have the capacity to protect themselves from security breaches and the potentially catastrophic consequences.
Holyrood’s 2nd annual Cyber Security Northern Ireland conference will examine the latest developments and emerging threats as well as showcasing best practice.
Join key stakeholders, experts and peers as we examine the next steps to strengthen defences, improve preparedness and cyber resilience.
