The annual Symposium on Cyber Risks, Opportunities and Education is heading for a complete sell-out this year, with tickets going fast. The event aims to be the largest so-far, and is an opportunity to debate some of the key threats and opportunties with Cyber Security.

This symposium brings 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 infrastuctures. The work is supported within the DFET EU project, which aims to train security professionals in key areas of malware, fraud and related areas.

The event is sponsored by Farrpoint and G2G3.
