  • A review of Cyber as a Tier 1 risk to the United Kingdom

  • IoT and how it will impact the threat landscape
  • Security by Design, and how it can be achieved

  • How future cyber threats are expected to evolve, and what government and industry must do to combat them
  • International collaboration in cyberspace

Rowland commented: “It was an absolute privilege to be invited by Her Majesty’s Government to provide evidence to the National Security Select Committee. Every day, Nettitude is actively involved in supporting organisations defend against and respond to cyber related attacks.

“Through first-hand experience of gathering threat intelligence, we are able to build-out actionable strategies to detect and defend against emerging cyber threats. To have an opportunity to share some of this experience and insight with the committee demonstrates the government’s commitment to build strong public/private partnerships in the cyber security domain.”

This event took place on Monday 27th March 2017.

Nettitude partners with Parliament as Cyber Security Month gets underway

February will see a series of events organised as part of Parliament’s Cyber Security Month, which is aimed at raising awareness of the importance of cyber security as an issue that those in Parliament need to address in their personal and professional lives.

Organised by the Parliamentary Digital Service in collaboration with a number of partners, including Nettitude, Cyber Security Month is part of a wider series of initiatives planned for 2017.

Over the course of four all-day sessions, Members of both Houses and their staff will have the opportunity to brush up on their existing knowledge and learn new skills relating to cyber security.

Nettitude’s CEO, Rowland Johnson, will today host a session on the current cyber threat landscape, explaining the sophistication and motivation of today’s attackers, as well as organised cyber crime and the importance of threat intelligence in providing security assurance.

Rob Greig, Director of the Parliamentary Digital Service, has commented: “In a rapidly evolving cyber security threat environment, Parliament is committed to promoting good cyber practice wherever possible. We can all benefit from improving our understanding and it is great to be collaborating with a number of industry-leading organisations during Parliament’s Cyber Security Month, and I look forward to a successful series of events which I hope will be interesting and informative.”
