Registration is now open for the NCSC's flagship annual cyber security conference, which will run over the three days from 10-12 April at Manchester’s Central Convention Complex.
CYBERUK 2018 will facilitate a national conversation to deepen understanding, challenge thinking, create debate and combine forces. Cyber security experts from across industry, academia and the public sector (including government ministers and senior policy makers) will take part in an innovative programme of compelling, interactive and inspiring sessions.
Last year’s conference was a great success. Many conversations that were seeded at last year’s CYBERUK conference have since flourished into formal partnerships. We’re delighted to be bringing CYBERUK 2018 to Manchester, a dynamic city that has long been at the forefront of industrial innovation, revolutionary thinking and the development of game-changing technology. It feels like an ideal setting for our series of interactive sessions, talks and tailored workshops.
As the UK government’s lead technical authority on cyber security, the NCSC's ambition is to make the UK the safest place to live and do business online. However, we can’t do this alone. Every citizen, business and government department has a part to play. The reality of the threat we face – large, growing and varied – underlines the importance of connecting a community of diverse talents and experience to meet these challenges collaboratively.
At NCSC, our experience to date has demonstrated that securing a safe and prosperous digital Britain is dependent not on one big process or one big organisation, but on the actions of hundreds, if not thousands of organisations and individuals working together.
I look forward to welcoming you in Manchester in April 2018.
