ITP Seminar: Security

Title ITP Seminar: Security
Organiser The ITP

Security continues to be a big concern for businesses and individual alike whether it be theft of personal data, loss of reputation, loss of business or event complete shut-down of operations.  No industry is immune but the telecoms industry bears a particular responsibility, not only because networks themselves are targets, but also because so many attacks make use of our networks, systems and servers to target third party businesses. 

In addition to cyber security, there is good old physical security – gates and locks only go so far as evidenced by the recent airport shut-downs arising from drone sightings.  It’s a constantly shifting landscape.  What is our industry doing to protect itself and to protect its customers?  Is there more that we should be doing?

This seminar will be an opportunity to pick-up on many of these concerns and gain an insight into the measures the industry is putting in place.

Speakers from the following companies:-
BT, Cisco, Nokia, Spirent

Alex Healing, Senior Research Manager, BT - Presenting: Cyber threat hunting; how BT are using AI for Cyber Security
Lewis Cartwright, Security Tech Lead BT Channels, Cisco Systems - Presenting: What is the future of the firewall - is the perimeter dead?
Paul Adams, Marketing Director, UK & I, Nokia - Presenting: The ostrich, the magpie and datacentre dwell time.
Alan Way, Senior business Development Manager, Spirent - Presenting: 5G & IoT or Internet of Threats?
