Day 2 - 18 March 2020

Cyber Security – Emerging Technology

This session will focus on the impact that new technologies such as blockchain, artificial intelligence and machine learning will have on cyber security.  Using case studies from across key verticals, we will examine threats to data, cyber intelligence and access management.  We start the day looking at how cultures within companies have to change to be able to accommodate these new methodologies.
