Cyber security and cake

  • The Event
  • The Venue

The 21st century has seen the convergence of two hugely significant developments: accelerating developments in artificial intelligence and the availability of data on a truly massive scale. Combined with the remorseless trend to sharing more and more personal information, these developments mean that organisations and individuals alike are increasingly at risk of identity theft, defamation and simple manipulation. New electronic weapons are being developed and deployed every day and we need to think much more seriously about what information we choose to store and how best to protect it. In this session, we will discuss the pre-requisites for safeguarding data, and the measures you need to have in place to meet an increasingly sophisticated array of challenges.

The programme


Arrival and welcome

Paul Sypko – Adapta Consulting
Welcome to the event, introductions and overview of the agenda for the afternoon.



The pre-requisites for safeguarding data

Philip French - Adapta Consulting

Pre-requisites for a robust cyber security strategy and the measures organisations need to have in place to meet the challenges going forward.


Case studies

Martyn Croft, Former CIO of Salvation Army and co-founder of Charities Security Forum
In this session Martyn will look at some of the practical cyber security challenges facing charities and not-for-profit organisations.  Drawing on many years of experience of keeping information safe and secure, the session will take the opportunity to address some of the unique issues as well as the everyday problems of information security in charities, plus reflections on how to get board level buy-in for cybersecurity issues that should be of concern for everyone.


Nicholas McGhee, Information Systems Director, GMB Union
In this session Nicholas will discuss how the GMB Union went about reviewing their cyber security, and share practical tips - including what worked well and, not so well, along the way.
