Cyber Defence

SMi Group is proud to present the 5th annual Cyber Defence conference, to be held in London on Monday 18th and Tuesday 19th June 2012.

This conference follows on from SMi’s previous highly successful Cyber Defence events and offers the opportunity to keep up-to-date with the latest developments, challenges and solutions that you need to keep up to speed and fully aware what is coming up on the cyber defence policy horizon.

This year's programme will focus on the continuing and future key cyber defence challenges and opportunities for the armed forces and security services. With military cyber systems having far greater integration and with constant interaction through the World Wide Web, the potential security dangers are apparent. The need to ensure security from organised nation state sponsored intrusion and opportunistic hackers mean the continued development and updating of multi-layered and sophisticated systems.

Don't miss the opportunity to network with a fantastic array of international speakers from the cyber defence arena. With last year's conference attracting an array of high level speakers, delegates and exhibitors, ensure that you book early to avoid disappointment and guarantee your place alongside leading cyber industry colleagues.

Our expert speaker line-up includes:

  • Lieutenant Colonel Christopher Barrington Brown, SO1 Land Information Assurance Group, British Army
  • Thomas Kristmar, Head of GovCERT, Danish Government
  • Steven Mehringer, Head of Communications Services, Public Diplomacy Division, NATO HQ
  • Roar Thon, Senior Advisor, Norwegian National Security Authority (NSM)
  • John Wayne Ross, Senior Analyst, Canadian Department of National Defence
  • Stuart Aston, Chief Security Advisor, Microsoft UK
