Where UK Businesses fight back against cyber crime

We are all in this together, but we believe there is a knowledge gap between the expertise of the cyber community and UK businesses leaders. We want to close that gap. Everyone has their part to play – policymakers, businesses, cyber professionals, IT departments, cyber vendors, software developers, law enforcement, media and educators. Join the community fighting back at UK Cyber Week.

We’re bringing everyone together to level up UK cyber security, demystify jargon, share the latest thinking and learn from truly world-class experts. Our promise is that everyone, no matter how much or how little expertise they have, leaves knowing more and is better equipped.

Both UK Cyber Week’s live flagship event and its digital programme are completely free to attend.

Who Should Attend?

At UK Cyber Week, we understand that tackling the onslaught of online risks isn’t something you can do alone.

That’s why we want to build not just a security culture, but a community. UK Cyber Week is the meeting place where infosecurity buffs and business leaders comes together to share expertise, immerse themselves in engaging seminars and party!

  • Cyber security experts attend to stay one step ahead of cyber criminals and to learn how to get their initiatives noticed by the board.
  • Business leaders attend to get to grips with threats and to protect their organisations.
  • Together you leave as a united front, ready to tackle the cyber issues threatening your business as a team.

By bringing these business siloes together, we can create a wiser, prepared and more protected UK.

Four in ten businesses (39%) and a quarter of charities (26%) report having cyber security breaches or attacks in the last 12 months*.

However, only 13% of UK businesses are even aware of Cyber Essentials – which is considered the best first step to a more secure network, protecting you from 80% of the most basic cyber security breaches.

Of course, even that still leaves you vulnerable to 20% of the more sophisticated attacks, which are evolving and mutating all the time!

Understanding these risks is complicated but we are here to help, no matter what level your knowledge is.

Here are just some of the questions UK Cyber Week will answer for you:

  • How much does being safe cost?
  • What are the threats I should be worrying about?
  • How do I recruit the right cyber skills for my business?
  • How does cyber insurance work?
  • How can I convince the board to take this seriously?
  • What does a cyber attack look like?
  • What is the impact of a cyber attack?
  • Who are the hackers?
  • Other than data loss, what damage can be done by an attack?
  • What is social engineering?

Understanding the risks and the available strategies to defend your organisation shouldn’t be left to suppliers, junior members of the team or to chance – it's on you to lead this.

That’s why attending UK Cyber Week is an important step on the road to protecting your business.
