Taking place at Millennium Gloucester Hotel London Kensington, UKSec event will bring together the UK’s leading cyber security experts in enlightening case studies and thought-provoking panel discussions.

With recent targets like postal voting systems, national water suppliers and also various NHS Trusts, it seems that highly-sophisticated cyber gangs are prepared to wreak havoc across the UK. Post-pandemic technology advances have been fast-tracked to support business processes and modern ways of working. However, without adequate supporting cyber resilience, they are a tempting route for cybercriminals to prey on. The figures are telling – according to NCSC, in the last 12 months 39% of UK businesses identified a cyber-attack (phishing, spoofing, ransomware, malware, or IoT hacking). So what can be done to avoid being in the firing line in 2023 and beyond?
