Cyber-security: the human connection

Philip Ingram MBE

Founder at Grey Hare Media

We hear a lot about “cyber threat” and commentators often describe individual elements of it, but what does it look like holistically? Where do the actual risks lie? How vulnerable are individuals and businesses in reality and what are those vulnerabilities?

Blockchain and cross-border anti-cybercrime legal frameworks

11.00am - 11.45am

Aviya Arika

Aviya Innovative Law

Massive financial fraud and immense data breaches are being heard of more and more, and in larger scales than ever before. Most cybercrime is conducted through hacks - the hacker finds a way to compromise the company’s servers  to extract or manipulate the data. When the data is encrypted and not all in one place this becomes much harder, and is what blockchain brings to the table. Aviya explores how this can assist with both legal and regulatory frameworks across the world.

Jean-Michel Azzopardi - Kralanx

Dr Jacqui Taylor - FlyingBinary

Andy Watkin-Child - ParaVa

With the movement of many organisations to online only models, they have opened themselves up to risks they may not fully appreciate. With numerous threats in the cyber world, one breach can destroy trust,  dent their reputation, or as we have seen in some highly advertised cases be the end of their business. 

Our panelists explore both the obvious and hidden dangers, and look at how evolving legislation and regulation may help in the future.
