President Barack Obama has described cyber attack as posing “one of the gravest national-security dangers” to the US. During a recent visit to Washington DC, British Prime Minister David Cameron warned that cyberwarfare “is an evolving threat which poses a real risk to our businesses.” In January, the US and UK announced a new programme of cyber war games in order to test their defences against attack.

There are three key reasons why the danger of cyber attacks has increased:

  • Governments, businesses and individuals are increasingly data-dependent.
  • Digital infrastructure is becoming ever more complex, making it harder to police.
  • Highly sophisticated hacking groups have suddenly risen in number.

Educating employees, say experts, is paramount. So is new legislation that strikes the right balance between security, and internet freedom.

Here are a number of world leading experts we’d like to recommend on cyber warfare, cyber-security, data management and internet freedom. To book these speakers for your event, or for more ideas on digital security experts, please get in touch.
