Cyber Security Scotland 2022 is the opening event of Cyber Scotland Week and comes as public agencies seek to bolster their defences against the rising tide of cybercrime.

Following the 2021 publication of the refreshed national cyber action plans, the event is an opportunity to hear the latest guidance from government leaders, cyber-mandated organisations, and academic experts on how to build greater resilience across Scotland’s critical digital infrastructure.

In the wake of a series of domestic cyberattacks, you will hear how the new Cyber Scotland Partnership has put in place a coordinated approach to cyber advice, support, training, and incident response that is helping organisations – in all parts of the economy – prepare, protect and prevent the scourge of online scams, including pernicious ransomware and dark web threats.
As the world becomes ever more digitally entwined, the conference will focus on how public sector agencies can ensure that valuable citizen data – whether it be at NHS, schools or local authority level - can be protected by investing more time, focus and energy on ensuring the cyber defenses of wider supply chains and managed service providers are the best they can be.

You will hear from global thought leaders on cybersecurity, outlining the threat landscape and how to get ahead of the cyber curve as well as leading industry practitioners in a series of masterclasses and leadership sessions. And we will be sparking a lively debate about how we monitor threats, and respond to them, in real-time through the creation of a more holistic cyber service that can provide education, cyber exercising, technology and policy guidance, as well as intelligence, incident management and recovery. Join us at Cyber Security Scotland as the increasing prevalence of digital systems – whether citizen facing or internal – are changing the way the public sector evaluates its cyber risks and responds accordingly.
