Those technical/complexity levels are:

Level 1: ABSOLUTE BEGINNER
We all have to start somewhere, and if you’re a business leader we’re not going to overwhelm you with acronyms or specialist subjects. This is the stream for you if you’re dipping your toes into cyber for the first time. Here, we’ll show you how your business can be affected and give you the basics. 

Level 2: I'VE HEARD OF RANSOMWARE
So, you’ve got a little bit of cyber know how but there’s definitely some gaps left in your knowledge? If you know what a firewall is and how Ransomware can impact your business, but that’s about it – then this is a session for you.

Level 3: IT SAVVY
You might work in the IT department and you are familiar with things like Cyber Essentials. You know what WannaCry was and wish more people would use 2FA. You do have some parts of your role that require cyber security skills.

Level 4: ADVANCED IT SKILLS
You are a technical IT professional. You are professionally involved in keeping your organisation secure and whilst it isn’t your full time job, you need to know how cyber is evolving - people depend on you.

Level 5: CYBER PRO
You are a certified cybersecurity professional. Infosec is what you do, so you’re looking for high quality insight from industry leaders and change-makers. No problem, stop by these sessions to level-up your cyber knowledge.

Level 6: RESEARCHER/ENGINEER/HACKER
You know if you’re level 6.
