Welcome note

"Cybersecurity is a crucial concern for every organisation in the private, public, and third sectors. The threat landscape is constantly evolving, with the number and types of threats growing every week. There are some organisations who run dedicated cyber security teams whilst there are others who rely on their IT departments or outsource their cyber needs to a third party. Wherever the security in your organisation comes from there is one thing we can all agree on keeping up to date with everything is very difficult. 

UK Cyber Week is on a mission to help level up cyber security knowledge for everyone – the cyber pros, the IT team and business leadership. We have built an event with the aim to provide conference level content but for free. We welcome everyone and no matter what your technical understanding, there is something at UK Cyber Week for you. 

We cover everything from ransomware to cloud security as well as security culture, wellbeing and diversity. We hope you come to UK Cyber Week to learn from our speakers, get inspired by our show floor full of cool tech suppliers and stay and network with the great and the good from the cyber community. 

We are very proud of UK Cyber Week and we welcome you in spring 2025."

Fighting back against cyber crime


We believe that, to close the knowledge gap between cyber experts and UK business leaders, we must work together. Policymakers, IT departments, cyber professionals, law enforcement, software developers, educators, and the media all play a critical role in safeguarding against cyber threats. 

Our event is completely FREE to attend and brings together world-class experts to demystify jargon, share the latest thinking, and equip attendees with the knowledge they need to protect their businesses.

Whether you're a cybersecurity veteran or new in the industry, you will leave our event feeling empowered and ready to take action against cyber threats.


5 reasons why you need to attend UK Cyber Week:

  • Let’s get real - our conference programme is designed to address the real issues that impact you on a day-to-day basis, with no filler sessions or aimless panel discussions.
  • Stay on top of your A-game when it comes to mitigation against security threats.
  • Get actionable tips that you can implement right away to improve your security posture – all from people in the know.
  • Be part of a community – businesses are stronger when they work together.
  • Network with like-minded leaders who are passionate about levelling up their cybersecurity knowledge.  


Who should attend?

We recognise the ever-increasing challenges of online risks and understand that it takes more than just individual effort to combat them effectively. That's why we strive to foster not only a security culture but a vibrant community as well.

Our events are designed to help: 

  • Cyber security experts who want to stay ahead of the game and learn how to effectively communicate their initiatives to board members.
  • IT professionals who want to gain a deeper understanding of the risks and learn how to thwart cyber-attacks.
  • Business leaders who want to learn about the latest threats and protect their organisations.

By bringing these groups together, we create a unified front that is better equipped to tackle the cyber threats facing UK businesses today.

Business Leaders

Business Leaders

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.
