Maps and Directions

  • Join the Cyber Threat Intelligence Workshop, hosted by Cyber Security Expert, Ian Thornton-Trump, and walk away with case studies and hands on examples of how to plan, collect, process, analyse, and disseminate cyber threat intelligence products for an organisation or Managed Service Provider.
  • Attend the 5 choices keynote by Nicholas Bate, Owner, Strategic Edge.  We all make choices. Sometimes consciously, often less so. Five choices to make more consciously are (1) to be excellent rather than Ok (2) to work on your business not just in it (3) to walk, not just talk (4) to build your personal brand as a verb rather than a noun (5) to develop EQ not just survive on IQ.
  • Dive into the Industry Outlook 2020 for the UK. This research report will show the approach companies plan to take in the next year across for four pillars of IT: infrastructure, software development, cybersecurity, and data.
