Conference

Cyber 2016

Evolving Threats, Security Developments and Improving Cooperation

23 May 2016 - 09:00 to 24 May 2016 - 13:30

Royal Society of Arts, London

With increasing connectivity across digital devices, cyber resilience is becoming ever more critical. However, with this greater complexity, it is also becoming harder to achieve. Borders between states, as well as the boundaries between governments and businesses, consumers and retailers, and criminals and victims, now exist online as well as in the physical realm. This presents cybersecurity challenges for states, businesses and individuals.

This conference will review emerging threats in cyberspace, address privacy rights and national security approaches online, analyze business vulnerability to cyber-crime and address what can be done to improve security across commercial and public organisations.  The role that international cooperation, technological developments, legislation or voluntary guidelines could play in tackling these challenges will also be assessed. 

The Chatham House Rule 
To enable as open a debate as possible, this conference will be held under the Chatham House Rule.

Session One | Continued Cyber Threats and Emerging Opportunities
09:30 - 10:55

  • What can be done to defend critical infrastructure, amid growing fears that it may be targeted by terrorists and others? Does the scope of ‘critical national infrastructure’ need to be revised in the cyber context to ensure preparedness and the correct government response?
  • As the ‘internet of things’ develops, how can cyber security be built in and how can it be ensured that cyber risks are managed without stifling innovation?
  • How can cyber resilience be ensured across the supply chain to ensure protection of, for example, intellectual property?

  • How does information sharing between businesses and across borders help to build resilience, what more can be done to improve collaboration and what is the role of regulators in facilitating this?
  • What impact will the Network and Information Security (NIS) directive have? Should there be EU level legislation mandating security requirements?
  • Does the potential for criminal cyber attacks pose a systemic risk to the financial sector? If so, to what extent do governments have a responsibility to protect businesses where a cyber security breach could have serious consequences for financial institutions and what policy mechanisms can be used to achieve this?
  • Is there a skills gap in cyber security and if so, what can be done to address it? Is there sufficient awareness of cyber security at the board level and motivation to take action in this area?
