What’s The Deal With Edinburgh & Cybersecurity?

Aside from London, Edinburgh is probably one of the cities in UK with the most number of Cybersecurity conferences which includes BSides Edinburgh, which is also one of the most famous Cybersecurity (‘Hacker Conferences) which take place through the world. In fact, here’s a trainspotting fact for you Edinburgh University was given Cybersecurity funds that would help not just their city, but the whole country to develop the skills to defend against cyber threats!

We should also note for the record that the author of this post has lived in Edinburgh, Scotland, for many years so he’s particularly keen to promote this page!

This conference will teach you about the current and emerging cyber threats and will enable you to join peers and cyber security professionals for easily implemented solutions to secure your data and minimize your exposure in the event of an attack.

Some of the key issues that will be addressed will include:
-How aware are you of the current cyber threat landscape in Scotland?
-Where are your organisation’s weakest cyber defence spots?
-Over a year on from the ‘cyber resilience strategy for scotland’, have the government’s priorities changed or have the implications and burdens on your organisation shifted?
-How cyber-competent and risk-aware are staff in the public and third sector and how can they be helped to make safer decisions online?
-Which solutions are most suited to your budget, industry and organisation?
-How are other organisations becoming more cyber resilient and which parts of their strategy could you adopt?
