Exclusive access to intelligence from industry-leading experts

The Future of Cyber Security Birmingham features a great Midlands-based location, with networking time, streams and bigger names than ever before. The Future of Cyber Security Birmingham 2020 will be a closed-door, invite-only conference and expedition featuring 400 hand-picked senior executives from major UK firms.

The expanded conference and exhibition is aimed at board level executives and senior IT decision-makers from government and industries including critical infrastructure, healthcare, retail, and financial services.

In just one day, the event will provide essential intelligence that enables senior personnel to stay one step ahead of cyber criminals as the attack surface expands. The conference covers today's cyber security trends and threats across Europe – as well as those of the future – equipping delegates with the tools needed to cope in an increasingly complex landscape.

The event will also examine the latest cyber security strategies and technologies. It will cover government cyber security strategy, how to fill the growing skills gap, news on the EU Update to Data Protection regulation (GDPR) and advice on trends such as the increasing amount of ransomware attacks and the threat posed by a firm’s employees.

Industry-leading conference and seminar sessions

The Future of Cyber Security Birmingham is even more targeted than before, with more seminar sessions and networking opportunities across multiple vertical industries. It follows hot on the heels of iMM Group’s highly successful 2020 events.

In the morning, it will cover cyber security strategy, including a look inside the National Cyber Security Centre, how to fill the skills gap using neurodiverse employees, and the GDPR fines firms such as Marriott and BA are facing one year since the regulation came into force.

Cyber-attacks are becoming increasingly sophisticated and expensive to deal with. The cost of a breach can be huge, often reaching millions of pounds. According to Accenture and the Ponemon Institute, the average cost of a cyber-attack is now $13 million. The Annual Cost of Cybercrime study found that cyber criminals are adapting their attack methods by targeting the human layer—the weakest link in cyber defence—through increased ransomware and phishing and social engineering attacks as a path to entry.

The event will discuss how to manage ransomware attacks, also focusing on how to deal with the threat posed by your employees – whether intentional or unintentional.

The event will provide the opportunity to engage with some major industry speakers and will also feature sessions on IoT security, AI as an advantage and a threat in cyber security, and a live on-stage hack of a connected car.

The Future of Cyber Security Birmingham gives you the opportunity to draw the latest intelligence from over 30 invaluable seminar, workshop, panel and breakout sessions featuring the leading names in the field.  

Our seminar streams and interactive round tables feature CSOs and thought leaders from multiple industries, aiming to encourage delegates to participate in the discussion, in an intimate setting with their peers.
