THINK CYBERSECURITY FOR GOVERNMENT - DECEMBER 2020
Our regular chairman, David Bicknell, welcomes all delegates, sponsors, and speakers to our conference and sets out the day’s agenda.
Paul McKay, Senior Analyst – Security and Risk at Forrester takes a look at Cybersecurity across the public sector from the outside in, comparing it with activity across the private sector and suggesting potential focuses and areas of concern for the years ahead.
A look at all of the various aspects of modern cybercrime and government. What parts of government are most at risk? As we build better and more omni-channel government services does the risk profile change? How can government use resources best to fit the ever-changing needs of the cybersecurity landscape?
The management of cybersecurity threats is a costly game. It requires specialist personnel and specialist tools. Is the use of a third-party service in the form of a Managed Security Service Provider (MSSP) the way forward for government? What are the impediments to the use of an MSSP? Can an MSSP bridge the skills gap in government?
The 3 Ps of People, Process and Platform - are key to rethinking security during challenging times but also to prepare for the continued digital transformation and cost challenges that lie ahead.
Legacy IT can leave gaps in your security defences. What are these gaps and how can you manage them? Can the cost be offset against the use of, for example, managed services? Is there an ROI for cybersecurity investment?
Our chair, David Bicknell, summarises some of the highlights of the day and invites delegates into the drink’s reception and final networking session of the day.
