techUK's Cyber Campaign Week
techUK's Cyber Campaign Week (14-18 May) will highlight the important role that cyber security plays in securing our digital economy.
This week sees the launch of ‘Cyber in the Digital Economy’; techUK’s flagship cyber security conference, taking place on Thursday 17 May at Bird & Bird. To coincide with #techUKCyberDE, this week we are celebrating how cyber security underpins the digital economy through our ‘Cyber Campaign Week’ - a series of blogs, articles and opinion pieces that highlight the importance of cyber security to our digital economy.
Our ‘Cyber Campaign Week’ will showcase how cyber security is transforming the UK; from the apps we use to order taxis and transfer money to the systems we’ve designed to enable access to buildings and homes, everything we do in this connected world relies on cyber security. With high profile cyber-attacks continuing to dominate the news, and upcoming data protection and cyber security regulation introduced this month through the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and the Network and Information Systems Directive (NIS), this week will highlight a range of key issues and topics that will dominate the cyber security sector for years to come, including:
- The cyber security regulatory landscape
- Cyber security and IoT
- Cyber security skills
We’ll also be looking at the retail, financial services and energy sectors and explore how cyber security is driving innovation and productivity within retailers, banks and energy companies.
