Strengthening Cyber Resilience
– Networks and Information Systems (NIS) Directive and other major developments
NIS and GDPR come into force in May this year and their impacts on the corporate, public service, regulatory and oversight world will be massive. This Round Table has been prepared with guidance from the National Cyber Security Centre and other parties responsible for implementation. The keynote is to be delivered by Mr Ciaran Martin, CEO of NCSC who will also participate in an extended panel discussion.
Broad discussion of cyber threats is a staple of business conferences. The aim of this round table is to survey the most important of these with particular attention to the future challenges stemming from technological advance. Most attention, however, will be focused on how the requirements that come into effect in May will actually be delivered in order the achieve the secure and resilient conduct of cyber business that is a central concern of UK authorities. The oversight regimes as spelt out by NCSC, DCMS, ICO and others bristle with complexity, and compliance by the regulated will require the expenditure of much time, money and effort. The discussions in the first two sessions focus on these.
The third part of the round table is particularly concerned with the evolution of regulation as the revolution in digital technology proceeds at a speed that is bound to test the ability of officials to react.
The fourth session looks at the UK in relation to foreign developments and enquires particularly into the supply chain issues facing corporates and others that operate in multiple jurisdictions. The impacts of Brexit add an uncertainty that will also feature. Cityforum has invited Estonian, United States and Australian participants to explain how they are securing cyber resilience. The day is devoted to establishing what has to be done and how to do it effectively in circumstances where, as with most new regimes, much remains to be clarified. The agenda offers substantial opportunity for questioning, explanation and guidance with responsible officials, regulators, the regulated and professional advisers all involved in a multi-faceted discussion chaired by practitioners with abundant experience.
