The Cyber Security field is expanding rapidly and it is more important than ever that organisations understand the challenges and risks of using increasingly complex and rapidly advancing technology.
Looking to explore these issues further, the OA has joined with specialist networking organisation, The Leaders Club, and Cyber and Security Expo, to discuss the key challenges and opportunities facing the Cyber Security industry.
The Cyber Security: The Facts, The Issues and The Opportunities networking event, Thursday 16th October 2019, will welcome key note speakers Jon Rigby and Pete Hodgkinson, both former military officers with Cyber expertise.
Jon Rigby, former RAF Officer and now Chief Cyber Officer for Liberty Specialist Markets Insurance Group works to develop cyber insurance products, and manages the aggregate underwriting risks arising from cyber hazards. He is joined by Pete Hodgkinson, former Royal Signals Officer, now working for Deloitte in their Public Sector Cyber Practice – he is currently working on a long term IT transformation programme.
Nigel Hare, Operations Director at the OA commented: “There is a need for technical expertise in the sector, as well as strong leadership, which gives former military personnel an advantage as they are well placed to bring their training, experience and skills to new roles within the Cyber industry. The timing of this event enables us to bring together subject experts, employers and those seeking a career in the sector for mutual benefit.”
Employers within the Cyber Security industry and those attending the Security and Cyber Expos are also welcome to register to attend the event.
