The number of cyber-attacks on companies, governments, and individuals has been consistently rising in recent years, with global ransomware attacks increasing significantly in 2020, up 485% in compared to 2019. Tackling cybersecurity and protecting key critical infrastructure is key to national security, and the quick pivot to remote working during the COVID pandemic has seen even the most prepared organizations face new security challenges, with cybercriminals quick to take advantage. This is highlighted by research that reveals CEOs are more concerned than ever about cybersecurity vulnerabilities, up to 91% from 80% last year. Alarmingly, nearly 80% of senior IT and IT security leaders believe their organizations lack sufficient protection against cyber-attacks, despite the fact that they have increased investment in security over the past 12 months. Mitigate cyber threats Highlighting the growing need for cybersecurity readiness and the complex environment security professionals are now operating in, the newly launched International Cyber Expo will open its doors at Olympia, London from 28-29 September – providing invaluable opportunities for face-to-face networking and a chance to discover the latest thinking and solutions designed to mitigate cyber threats. Co-located with the International Security Expo, two industry events under one roof will provide attendees with the perfect platform to identify the very latest technology and services to protect the digital and physical future. Attendees Aimed at Government officials, cyber policymakers, export leaders, and CISOs from around the world, the event will help improve the security and resilience of national infrastructures and business continuity with representatives from the Communications, Energy, Utilities, Finance, Government, Health, and Transport sectors all in attendance. Game-changing products Attendees will meet more than 50 exhibitors as they demonstrate their products and innovative solutions With game-changing products and services on display, attendees will meet more than 50 exhibitors, including Tripwire, Jacobs, Dencrypt, 3M, and Ascentor, as they demonstrate their expertise in Network Protection, Industrial Systems, Endpoint Security, Managed Services, Apps, Mobile Security, Identity & Access Management, Cloud Security, Threat Intelligence, Disaster Recovery and more. Product demonstrations will be staged in the Product Innovation Theatre, where leading brands launching products and services will showcase their innovative solutions. Live cyberattack demonstration Live demonstrations will also take place in the Live Cyber Attack Demonstrator, in association with CrisisCast. Bringing realistic, informed, crisis management and disaster incidents to life, CrisisCast will partner with leading International Cyber Expo exhibitors to deliver a highly immersive, real-time cyber-attack on an eminent retail chain. Incorporating hi-tech stage and film techniques, visitors to the exhibit will be able to see and understand the psychology and motivating factors behind the attack from two perspectives at once – the attackers and the entity’s boardroom. Protection from malware attacks Elsewhere on the show floor, Cyber Griffin will present its award-winning Decisions and Disruptions tabletop exercise designed to explore the decisions that people make in real-life scenarios to protect their businesses from modern-day threats. Fully immersive teams will put to the test as they respond to both hacking and malware attacks, in addition to physical security threats. Professional training The National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC) certified training will offer participants a chance to see first-hand how cybersecurity can affect an organization's turnover, reputation, and regulatory fines while highlighting how cyber and physical security impact each other. Global Cyber Summit The Global Cyber Summit will showcase current and future threats will be put under the spotlight Offering exclusive insights into the most pertinent industry trends, the event will also host the Global Cyber Summit where current and future threats will be put under the spotlight. Running over two days, the program will see a range of globally renowned experts share their knowledge and expertise on a range of topics from serious organized cybercrime, state-sponsored hacking, ransomware attacks, protecting critical national infrastructure, and more. All sessions are CPD-certified and a full program for the two-day high-level summit will be announced in the coming months. Backed by professionals Ensuring the event has a laser-like focus on the issues facing us now and in the future, an impressive panel of 27 renowned industry experts have joined the International Cyber Expo Cyber Advisory Council and will share their experiences and knowledge with the show organizers.
