Event details

The 17 largest Government departments recorded a combined 8,995 data breaches between 2014 and 2015. Launching the new National Cyber Security Strategy in November 2016, Chancellor Philip Hammond pledged £1.9 billion of investment to deter attacks and strengthen the Government’s digital defences. The new National Cyber Security Centre has been tasked with bringing the UK’s digital expertise together to rethink the way the country deals with online threats. Despite this progress, the National Audit Office has raised major concerns about the cost effectiveness of Government IT security and questioned the readiness of the public sector to resist a serious attack.

Join us for the Public Sector Cyber Security Conference where leading experts will explain how to protect the vital services provided by central Government, local councils and the NHS. Learn how to safeguard sensitive data such as medical records and keep IT systems safe from cyber-attacks by states, criminal gangs and cyber terrorists.
