UPCOMING EVENT – Cyber Crime: The Next Threat

The UK is under attack.

Whether the target is an illicit dating site, a leading business, charity or even the National Health Service (NHS), hackers and international criminals have demonstrated a level of indiscriminate ruthlessness towards wreaking havoc and stealing confidential information from victims.

The impact of these attacks are profound. In September last year, that ride-hailing firm Uber agreed to pay £133m to settle all legal action over the cyber attack that exposed data from 57m customers and drivers back in 2016. British Airways was hit in the summer by a breach, affecting 380,000 transactions, involving stolen personal and financial information, but not passport or flight details. Additionally, Facebook also disclosed that a security breach exposed up to 90m Facebook user accounts in September 2018.

Join us in Parliament for a special debate on the full extent of the cybercrime threat facing businesses, with leading guest speakers from the world of academia and industry.

The event will be taking place on Wednesday 20th March from 6.30pm – 8pm

Confirmed speakers include:

Ayman El Hajjar, lecturer, Computer Science and Engineering, University of Westminster

Tim Sadler, CEO, Tessian

Dan Raywood, contributing editor, Infosecurity Magazine

Spencer Young, Regional Vice President, Imperva
