Cyber security – or even just cyber – is getting a lot of attention.
Everyone says it’s important, but rather fewer can say they have addressed it. Many companies will sell solutions, but it’s useful to understand what the problem actually is! The name may be topical, but cyber security is not a new thing. Fundamentally, threats exist – both deliberate and accidental in nature – and we need to protect systems and data against them.
This talk seeks to outline the basic concepts of cyber security, the nature of the threats and the attacks that may be faced. It will also highlight some of the core guidance that is available to organisations that want to ensure safeguards.
Professor Steven Furnell is the head of the Centre for Security, Communications and Network Research at the University of Plymouth, an Adjunct Professor with Edith Cowan University in Western Australia, and an Honorary Professor with Nelson Mandela Metropolitan University in South Africa. His interests include security management and culture, computer crime, user authentication, and security usability.
This event is free to attend - no booking required. Just turn up on the night!
Tea and coffee is available at 18:30 prior to the talk in Room 002, Babbage Building.
