Best practice in critical sectors – assessing the real risks and countering the harms
Cityforum is delighted to be working with NCSC on the development of this Cyber Security Round Table ‘Best practice in critical sectors’ which is seen as an important event in the NCSC programme of wider engagement in 2017 and follows a significant event in October 2016 on the eve of its establishment of NCSC.
Mr Ciaran Martin CEO NCSC, who carries the weight of the responsibility to protect the UK is confirmed to give the opening keynote address and Mr Alex Dewdney Director of Engagement also plays a significant role in the day.
The challenges facing the National Centre for Cyber Security have grown ever more serious since NCSC was set up in 2016 and comprehensive engagement and partnership with private sector owner–operators of CNI and other critical sector organisations, whether public or private, as well as regulatory bodies remains vital to the safety of the UK. A full understanding of the threat environment, of the potential risks and of where the greatest harms lie will be essential if cyber resilience is to be effective.
This round table, which looks at regulation and standards and the skills and expertise required to protect the UK’s most critical sectors, includes the following key themes:
– Defining and quantifying the actual harms cyber attacks can cause
– Building up the much talked about but difficult to deliver concerted effort to enhance security
– Assessing where the fresh thinking should be done in a swiftly changing threat environment and making such thinking have a real impact
The day is run along the lines of short speeches, followed by extended discussion under the Chatham House Rule. The agenda is being developed in consultation not only with NCSC but also with the individuals who are invited to contribute. Cityforum would welcome discussing the agenda with any organisations and individuals who would be interested in being involved.
This is a practical day designed to help formulate best practice in critical sectors whose executives will be well represented on the attendance list. For details of the agenda and other confirmed speakers to date please see below.
Who will be in the room?
