Online event shines spotlight on cyber security

Staying ahead of cyber criminals will be the subject of tomorrow's virtual event organised by the company supporting the growth of Cheltenham's cyber tech hub.

CyNam 20.3 will see local cyber experts joined by experts from Cheltenham data company Ripjar, Microsoft and BAE Systems.

You can still register for the event, which runs from 5-7pm, at cynam.org with keynote talks, panel sessions and virtual discussions which you can access during the break.

Subjects covered include transforming cyber threat intelligence, how Microsoft disrupted the cybercriminals, ransomware's perfect storm and the latest news from the UK cyber cluster.

The previous event in June saw more than 1,400 online delegates when Cyber Central strategic advisor Nick Sturge compared Cheltenham to Silicon Valley.

He said: "If you reach about an hour and 20 minutes outside Cheltenham, we have 19 universities - that's on par with Silicon Valley.

"The connectivity, £450million and counting of funding and Cheltenham being ranked as one of the best places to live makes this location pretty much unbeatable."
