I was very happy to open our NextSec event in collaboration with EY. We had some great presentations followed by a well-facilitated discussion panel which offered a wonderful knowledge sharing session for everyone who attended.
The main themes of the evening were the changing threat landscape and widening the skills gap. The participants learned about the future of malware from Sian John, a security futurologist from Symantec, and how to address it by developing a security strategy with the help of Robert Coles, GSK. Elena Cinquegrana shared her perspective on being a consultant while Freddie Hult from CyberResilience Ltd. discussed the role of a CISO. Lucy Chaplin from KPMG concluded with a talk on privacy issues in the modern world.
