About the Event

Who should attend?

Information security leaders and practitioners and anyone with responsibility for cyber security in on-premise and public cloud environments, such as Microsoft Azure, Microsoft 365 and Amazon AWS. If your company relies on the security of its data and applications, whether on-premise or in the cloud or both, this event is for you.

If this topic is relevant to another member of your team, please do pass this on.

What will you learn?

We will look at elements of Cyber Security that have been brought into focus in 2021. We will be talking about security trends, additional Cloud Security considerations, recovering from incidents - including a fascinating look at security forensics from one of our guests. We’ll have some fun live hacking hidden threats and compromising our fictional but very real case study, “HackMe Data.”

We’re especially looking forward to introducing two of our guest speakers - to each other! Jen Radcliffe is a ‘burglar for hire’ and expert in social engineering who will close the day. And our keynote speaker is Detective Superintendent Neil Jones who is director of the North West Cyber Resilience Centre. We look forward to hearing from both of them.

  • Trends and considerations for cyber security in 2021. DS Neil Jones, NWCRC and Scott Cardow, MD, Precursor.
  • Social Engineering – learn how criminals use the 'human element' to access buildings, data and critical information.  Jenny Radcliffe, Human Factor Security.
  • See how hackers exploit weaknesses in the cloud and on-premise environments and how you can avoid them getting to you. Discover investigation and recovery techniques and how to respond to incidents, Precursor & IntaForsensics Team.
  • A Redstor customer will explain why creating a cyber-secure backup is your first step to real security. Redstor.

There will be plenty of time during the day to ask questions of the Precursor team and our speakers. You will leave with a checklist of precautions you can take, and an action list for recovery in the event of a compromise.

Covid Protocols: At present, there are no requirements for Covid restrictions to be in place for this type of event. We will be watching Government guidelines and will notify you of any changes. The venue is still maintaining social distancing and hygiene precautions. For the reassurance of all, we would appreciate that you have either been double-vaccinated and/or have had a negative Covid test within 48 hours of the event. Thank you.
