“The UK is one of the world’s leading digital nations. Much of our prosperity now depends on our ability to secure our technology, data and networks from the many threats we face” (Hammond 2016:6).
Digital technology is the most preferred method of storing information and completing work both within the workplace and remotely off-site in the UK – at a time when business cybercrime has increased by 63%. The Information Security and Data Management conference will help you to develop a greater understanding of how both the government and cyber technological experts are completely transforming the IT industry. This in turn will help ensure that both businesses and individuals’ infrastructures are well-equipped utilising digital technology, effective response rates are established, revised compliance legislation is being upheld, gender balance is maintained within the roles of IT and security and that the risk of cyber-attack and threat is dramatically educed.
The agenda will be based around the UK government’s ‘National Cyber Security Strategy 2016 – 2021’ whereby £1.9 billion will continue to be spent on defending systems and organisational infrastructures utilising digital technology so that by 2021, Britain will be “confident, capable and resilient in a fast-moving digital world”. Thematic discussions will take place involving the areas of: privacy management and compliance and how Case Law impacts organisations and their operational facilities, the incorporation of women within the workplace and the gender-balance being created in both cyber and security, the rise of data controllers and how risk can be managed, the threat and impact of cyber-crime affecting both private and public sector organisations and the use of the Cloud for data managing growing data volumes. There will be presentations from both government officials and those within the industry will be supplemented by innovative, practical sessions which are designed to be inspiring and beneficial across both public and private sector organisations and individuals.
Our Head of Privacy and Data Protection, Ivana Bartoletti will be presenting on “The role of privacy management and privacy compliance” at this event.
