Security is now a key topic high on most UK business agendas and there is increasing recognition of a widespread 'Security skills shortage'.

In 2016 ISC(2) research suggested that there will be a deficit of 1.5 million unfulfilled jobs in cyber globally by 2020. 

Two hot topics will be the focus of this event and discussion:

  • The need for more women in Security and the steps being taken in the industry to move this forward - including career paths and innovations in the security space.
  • Harnessing the power of Cognitive Security - how Watson for Cyber Security is enabling analysts to investigate threats with unprecedented speed and accuracy.

Join us to listen, learn and share views about these important topics.

Our presenters are:

  • Dr Saritha Arunkumar, Security Leader & Master Inventor, Emerging Technology Services IBM
  • Mike Spradbery, Technical Manager, IBM Security Business Unit, UKI
