infosecurity 2018

infosecurity 2018 Baroness Martha Lane Fox: huge unease about online privacy, security and how data is being used. and how data is being used," she told attendees. "We cannot have a robust society, if technology is undermining our democratic institutions. I believe it's crucial to keep liberal values at the heart of our digital world and infrastructure. I am a technology optimist. This is a moment to ensure that we help people through their anxieties, build a positive future, not look backward, but rather use technology to conquer the challenges we face and help the UK to set a global standard in digital resilience and responsibility." Infosecurity Europe also hosted its first ever Cybersecurity for Critical National Infrastructure Symposium, moderated by Talal Rajab, head of programme, Cyber & National Security, TechUK. Dr Jamie Shea, deputy assistant secretary general for Emerging Security Challenges, NATO, delivered his Opening Keynote on 'Analysing the Scope of the Threat to CNI to Drive Effective Risk Mitigation' and speakers in the Symposium programme included representatives from Arqiva, BT Security, DCMS, TechUK and Thames Water. Also this year, KETS Quantum Security was crowned the UK'S 'Most Innovative Small Cyber Security Company of the Year', a nationwide competition supported by the Department of Digital Culture, Media and Sport, and sponsored by SNC-Lavalin Atkins, having pitched its case to an expert judging panel and Infosecurity Europe audience. WOMEN IN CYBERSECURITY Careers for women in cybersecurity were under the spotlight at the 'Women in Cybersecurity' Networking Breakfast where explorer, scientist and author Felicity Aston gave the opening speech to a packed room of industry professionals that met to celebrate the women of cybersecurity and discuss the challenges around diversity. Aston is a British adventurer, climate scientist and STEM advocate, who in 2012 became the first woman to ski solo across Antarctica. At 23, she left the UK to spend three years living and working in the Antarctic as a meteorologist with the British Antarctic Survey at Rothera Research Station. On her return, she became part of the first all-female team to complete the Polar challenge, a 360-mile endurance race across the Canadian Arctic. A year later, Aston led the first British women's crossing of the Greenland ice-sheet. She has gone on to lead numerous expeditions, including the Kaspersky Lab Commonwealth Antarctic Expedition, the largest and most international women's expedition ever to ski to the South Pole. 16 computing security July/August 2018 @CSMagAndAwards
