Cyber Security: Home Alone?

Is there ANYONE in the cyber-threats driver’s seat?

Join the Harvard Club of the UK for an event on cybersecurity. The broadcast-leak earlier this year of United States National Security Agency’s suite of hacking tools has intensified large scale hacking events, across the private and public sectors: Does technology expand efficiency or precarity?

Our Cyber-Security Launch Debate asks: Is there any adult supervision out there?

Hayley Ard takes the following speakers through the issues:

  • Caroline Baylon, Information Security Research Lead at AXA, a cyber security insurer
  • Andy Fourie, Microsoft Cyber-Threats specialist
  • Eva Ignatuschtschenko, independent cybersecurity expert within international organisations, academia and government
  • Mike St John Green, ex-GCHQ and Cabinet Office Cybersecurity and Information Assurance
  • Nick Van Benschoten, an ex- PWC anti-bribery and corruption advisor with prior background regulatory and compliance policy;
  • Colin Howard, Satswana, an iconoclastic old-school encryption-led cyber-security firm from the pre-blockchain “compliance” database era, whose designed exchanges have operated since 2002, with a taste for sorting true innovation from gadgetry. 

Our intention is to expand the participation and scale of these events as the Cyber Security series progresses and to shift initiative in design and execution of collaboration towards our participants. This will build a rapidly expanding cohort beyond the habitually closed borders of our separate alumni associations.  Hence we build: Open Knowledge Networks – for Knowledge Without Borders.

Date: Wednesday 27 September at 18:00 for 18:30 until 21.00

Location: Barnard’s Inn Hall, Gresham College, Holborn EC1N 2HH
