CYBERUK 2018 is the National Cyber Security Centre’s (NCSC) flagship event on cyber security. Over three days, 1800+ people will attend events covering both strategy (CYBERUK Leadership) and delivery (CYBERUK In Practice) – giving you up to date information and industry leading insights.

Building on success

CYBERUK 2017 was rated a success by sponsors, exhibitors and delegates alike, so our approach this year is to learn from what worked best and build on it. Delegates liked the chance to mix with innovative start-ups as much as established names in the industry. We saw how well the informal atmosphere helped with networking, so we’ll have more networking events and more relaxed breakout areas. And we’ll be adding more ways for delegates to become a part of the event, from live polling and questions to more interactive events and team-based challenges.

CYBERUK 2018 will be a curated event, emphasising quality over quantity. Quality of speakers, quality of workshops, quality of exhibitors and, most of all, quality of delegates. Invitations will go out to the key decision makers and the most skilled professionals across every Whitehall department and the public sector. Both events will be free of charge to public sector participants. We’ll also attract thought leaders and specialists from Critical National Infrastructure, the information security and technology industry as well as Academia and the Third Sector. In other words, everyone at the conference needs to be there – and is worth getting to know.

CYBERUK 2018: Three Days, Two Events, One Destination

The NCSC’s first annual review identified that the cyber security threat to the UK is large, growing and diverse. In its first year of operating, the NCSC has achieved a huge amount establishing itself as the lead UK authority when it comes to cyber security. To deliver the NCSC vision we need to create a wide range of partnerships between Government, Industry and Academia. More than this, we need to develop a national conversation with everyone living and working in the UK.

That means moving beyond encouraging partnership and co-operation, and looking to build a true community of interest, encompassing everyone with a stake in cyber security. And, since the online threat affects citizens, Industry, Government and wider society, this is the scope of the ‘big conversation’ we need to have. CYBERUK 2018 will be where this starts.

It will never be possible to stop every cyber attack, but the NCSC is committed to delivering a world-class incident management service. CYBERUK 2018 will give us an opportunity to discuss and identify how we can build on what we have done so far. 

We’ll also focus on some areas of the UK economy which face unique challenges in implementing effective cyber security, especially retail and the voluntary sectors. We will discuss how we can support them and help make them less vulnerable to attack.

We know that in the years ahead there is so much to do in countering the strategic threat to our values, prosperity and way of life.  People are our strongest link and we know that building a community of partners for cyber security is crucial to meeting these challenges together.

CYBERUK In Practice (10-11 April): Bringing together 1200+ information security professionals. This will include specialists in the design and development of online services and systems, plus professionals in procurement and delivery. It will be an opportunity to share best practice, learn about the latest security threats and solutions, and consider the growing challenges we all face.

CYBERUK Leadership (12 April): The Government’s leadership event for business and public sector decision makers and strategists.  This is where key senior staff – policy makers, CEOs and thought leaders – will learn about and contribute to the development of the latest thinking on how cyber security and business acumen come together to deliver successful business outcomes. Speakers will be drawn from the same community as the 600+ delegates – Government, Academia, the Third sector, Critical National Infrastructure and Industry.  Minister-led, it will feature senior representatives from GCHQ and the NCSC.  It will include the popular CYBERUK Leadership Networking Dinner on 11 April 2018.

Not just another event

The only UK Government-hosted event for this sector. CYBERUK 2018 will be the largest and most wide ranging event for cyber security leaders and professionals in the UK. It will attract the key players in Government, Academia, and Industry, and will offer unrivalled networking opportunities.

Truly interactive

Everything about the event will be designed to encourage debate, feedback and input. Bringing to you world-class speakers, creating dynamic Q&As, competing at the Cyber Games and sharing through interactive walls, we’ll create an event built around you. An event that will inform, challenge and inspire attendees – and create an atmosphere where networking is built-in, not bolted on.

Why attend?

  • Hear from thought leaders, be that Ministers, technology leaders, or others with interesting and relevant messages to give.
  • Meet leaders from across the sector.
  • Participate in challenging and thought provoking content.
  • Learn from the best – thought leaders from Government, Industry, Academia and the Critical National Infrastructure.
  • Connect with the wide range of public sector participants, personally invited by the UK Government.
  • Enjoy a mix of plenary talks, themed streams/tracks and Lightning Talks.

STREAMS AND TRACKS

Streams and Tracks offer participants an opportunity to share information, explore case studies and take part in debates on issues around information and security.

Throughout the event you can add your challenges, feedback and questions and chat to our graphic artist who will find visual ways to capture your insights.

CYBERUK In Practice logo

CYBERUK In Practice (10-11 April 2018)

The highly interactive event over two days will provide a wide range of sessions to cater for all levels of knowledge and experience using the much enjoyed chilli ratings we introduced in 2017.  The event content will be heavily informed by the delegates, sponsors, and exhibitors thus ensuring we create an environment to promote diversity, create challenging conversations and identify opportunities to achieve our vision of making the UK the safest place to live and work online. 

CYBERUK In Practice brings together the professional community responsible for developing and implementing cyber security across Government, Industry and the Critical National Infrastructure.

Over the two days, case studies and participative content will help delegates understand what we can do together as teams, as departments and as organisations to implement digital data and technology as safely and securely as we can.

This event will combine short, compelling plenary keynotes and panel debates, the following four Tracks will span two days and will be led by NCSC Technical Directors.

TRACKS

Track 1 • Vulnerabilities and Bug hunting - A technical stream that will explore vulnerability discovery, with some strong use-cases.

Track 2 • Cutting edge mitigations and future technology - Showcasing the art of the possible in security mitigations with today’s technology as well as looking to the future.

Track 3 • Data Science, analytics and automation - Taking a data driven approach to security, using analytics and automation to drive operational security.

Track 4 • Whole System Security - Advanced approaches to security analysis and management, drawing on risk, modelling and learning from engineering practices.

NETWORKING

On Monday 9 April there will be an evening Welcome Drinks Reception, held at a central Manchester location.

A relaxed CYBERUK In Practice Networking Drinks evening will take place in the exhibition hall following the first day of CYBERUK In Practice (10 April). Activities will centre around the Spotlight Stage with additional entertainment planned throughout the evening. This will be a prime time to network within the exhibition whilst enjoying food and refreshments.

THE AUDIENCE

CYBERUK In Practice will attract 1200+ technology and cyber security professionals from across the public sector, Critical National Infrastructure, Industry and Academia. They’ll come together to share the cyber security challenges we all face.

Our programme of seminars, Lightning Talks and keynote speeches is designed to stimulate feedback, challenge thinking, create debate and enable networking. We saw how well last year’s interactive elements worked in getting delegates talking, exchanging experience and technical insights – so we have planned some new experiences for 2018.

Delegates will leave with a thorough understanding of latest practice and policies, new innovations and emerging cyber threats. And, most of all, they’ll have built valuable new connections.

CYBERUK Leadership logo

CYBERUK Leadership (12th April 2018)

The 2018 event will develop highly interactive sessions which will focus on building our community for cyber security across four objectives; Reduce, Respond, Understand and Nurture.  It will bring together leaders who can enable a dynamic discussion, include workshops where challenges can be explored and time to build new relationships and networks across the public sector, Industry and Academia. 

CYBERUK Leadership will set the agenda for UK cyber security. This event will provide clarity in the new organisation’s evolving strategy and delivery plans. It will give the leadership community the chance to debate priorities, challenges and opportunities.

Following short, high impact plenary keynotes and debates, delegates will divide into four Streams. Each will be chaired by an NCSC Engagement Deputy Director entrusted with shaping and leading the team’s delivery.

STREAMS

Stream 1 • REDUCE - Examining how the cyber security community reduces risks to the UK by securing public and private sector networks.

Stream 2  RESPOND - Demonstrating how the cyber security community responds to cyber security incidents to reduce the harm they cause to organisations and the wider UK.

Stream 3 • UNDERSTAND - How the cyber security community understands cyber security, and distils this knowledge into practical guidance that we make available to all.

Stream 4 • NURTURE - Developing industry and academic expertise to nurture the UK's cyber security capability.

NETWORKING DINNER

A prestigious CYBERUK Leadership Networking Dinner will be held on Wednesday 11 April, before the conference begins on Thursday.

THE AUDIENCE

CYBERUK Leadership will attract leaders in cyber security across Government and Industry, regulatory bodies and influencers. How can we be so sure? Last year’s event saw over 800 delegates – from senior leaders and risk owners from Government departments and cyber security leaders from the public and private sector including Academia. Over the day, we created a perfect environment for them to meet, network, and hear from leaders in their fields. This year will build on that success – but with more interactivity, more input from participants, and more opportunities to meet, exchange ideas and build relationships.

Around 60 per cent of participants will come from the public sector, and the public sector places are free.  The NCSC will ensure that we get the right mix by personally inviting key staff in strategic, decision-making roles. These are the people whose voices are listened to, who set the agenda, and who make things happen. CYBERUK Leadership attendance is invitation only for the public sector.
