The full programme will be announced soon, but Don Smith (Dell Secureworks) and Andy Archibald (NCA) have confirmed their speaking commitments.

This symposium aims to bring together knowledge from many different domains in order to create knowledge exchange and collaborative infrastructures, which address the key cyber risks that Scotland and the UK faces. Key focal points are:

  • Education and Training within Cyber Education.
  • Cybercrime Risks, Malware Analysis/Detection and Fraud.
  • Security Data Gathering and Analytics.
  • Cyber Risks, Resilience and Failover.
  • Governance, auditability and accountability in the Cloud.
  • Information Sharing across the Public and Private Sector.
  • Critical Infrastructure and First Response.
  • Real-time Analytics on Risks.
  • Risks to privacy and identity theft.

There will be a special focus on key areas such as the skills gap in cyber education, law enforcement training, and in the provision of a range of training infrastructures. The conference is supported within the DFET EU project, which aims to train security professionals in key areas of malware, fraud and related areas.
