Looking Forward: Cyber Security Scotland 2023
Holyrood Connect once again returned with its massively popular annual cyber security event, Public Sector Cyber Security Scotland, on Thursday, 2 February 2023! This event acted as the premier event for public sector cyber security professionals in the lead-up to Cyber Scotland Week later in the month. The day gave delegates the opportunity to dive into the themes and topics that were individually explored in smaller events over the week, occurring from 27 February to 5 March.
Our 2023 event focused on looking forward to the future of cyber security. What looms on the horizon for public sector cyber security, and how can we best be positioned to combat it using individuals’ skills, sectoral collaboration, and innovative technology? The event provided delegates with the opportunity to hear the latest developments around security and hot topics within the sector, as well as network with leading figures, peers, and industry representatives. Throughout the day, audience members were able to include their own voices in the discussion through Question & Answer portions. Sessions of a variety of formats, including panel discussions, case studies, and plenary presentations, delved into elements such as:
- The importance of recognising the latest cyber threats, as well as solidifying cyber resilience within an organisation.
- Examination of the current landscape of innovative cyber security technology, and the relationship between industry and public sector when it comes to possible cutting-edge security solutions.
- The critical need for continued development and increased investment toward closing the cyber skills gap.
- Available resources and ongoing projects aimed at improving cyber resilience across the sector.
