"The National Cyber Security Programme"

Promoted Captain in 2008, Capt Ian McGhie RN assumed responsibilities as Deputy Director All Source Intelligence in Defence Intelligence in the same year. He moved to the Cabinet Office in late 2009 to help set up the new Office of Cyber Security, where his main roles centre on policy development (including in relation to SDSR and CSR outcomes), and delivery of the National Cyber Security Programme.

As instigator of the UKs National Cyber Security Programme, his talk will dispel what the National Cyber Security Programme actually is, as well as what it is not with a focus on the areas and capability his office is seeking to deliver over the next four years.

"IPv6 What's all the fuss about?"

For ten years or more, the impending exhaustion of the address space of the legacy internet protocol, IPv4, has been planned for by the networking community but attempts to engage the corporate world in order to make an orderly transition to IPv6 have largely fallen on deaf ears. Now that Ipv4 address space is actually exhausted, what should we be doing to ensure that the Internet continues to grow.

Director of Threat & Vulnerability Management, PWC
"The UK Cyber Challenge"

We want to excite and inspire those who wouldn't necessarily consider cyber security as a legitimate career, while at the same time identifying the most talented individuals.
