What was discussed at CYBERUK 2023?

Day 1 kicked off with a welcome address from Lindy Cameron (CEO, NCSC) and a panel discussion chaired by Cameron. The discussion explored the future actions needed to secure a “resilient and prosperous” tomorrow. The panel brought to light how and where different nations and institutions should collaborate to achieve a stronger cyber security posture.

Our highlights include a workshop exploring the role of the National Cyber Force (NCF) as part of the UK’s growing cyber ecosystem, a talk exploring the future of Cyber Security in the supply chain and a technical masterclass on threat modelling.

Day 2 explored key issues even further and our team particularly enjoyed the technical masterclass on red teaming and the panel discussion titled, ‘We have the technology. Why aren’t we using it? Let’s commit to fixing our foundations’.
