THE UK’s flagship cyber security conference CYBERUK will be fully virtual this year - allowing wider access to world-class experts than ever before.
CYBERUK 2021 ONLINE will be hosted on 11-12 May by the National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC), which is a part of GCHQ.
For the first time, attendees will be able to access the event from their home or workplace and get involved in online forums as it goes fully digital.
The virtual format means the majority of content will be completely open to all – creating the opportunity to reach a wider audience than ever before as the NCSC continues its mission to make the UK the safest place to live and work online.
The event has become a key date in the calendar for thought leaders in cyber security and technical professionals from the UK and around the world.
Past CYBERUK conferences have attracted thousands of delegates to discuss the UK’s cyber security and share vital information about the threat landscape.
Lindy Cameron, Chief Executive Officer of the NCSC, said
“Hosting CYBERUK in a fully digital format for the first time gives us a chance to widen participation in what has become a globally important cyber security event.
“The virtual event will allow participants to access world-class expertise on the cyber landscape and discuss how the UK can continue to defend itself from online threats.
“CYBERUK is all about bringing together the cyber security community to learn from one another, and we look forward to hosting captivating talks and discussions that will help to keep us all safer in cyberspace.”
The theme for this year’s conference will be: ‘Building a resilient and prosperous digital UK following COVID-19’.
The event will run across two days with a mix of live keynotes and panels, as well as a selection of pre-recorded content from the NCSC and sponsors for participants to watch in their own time. In addition, participants will have the opportunity for some live Q&A with some of our speakers on Twitter after key sessions.
Updates about accessing the event and this year’s exhibitors, speakers, sponsors and programme will be published on the NCSC website in the coming weeks.
The NCSC will look to return CYBERUK to an in-person format next year.
